According to BNN chief Petrus Reinhard Golose, law enforcement officers managed to confiscate 5,302 grams worth of crystal meth and the raw material. 

"Currently, we have sent several samples and checked at the BNN RI lab in Bogor, from the suspect's information and from this inspection process, we will check it later in the lab," said Petrus in Batam, Thursday, July 21, 2022.

Regarding the raw materials for making the illicit drugs, Petrus said that he still had to carry out a deeper investigation because this case had just been revealed.
