The Riau Police narcotics directorate on Wednesday destroyed drugs worth hundreds of millions of rupiah.
The drugs, consisting of 496.7 grams of crystal meth, 271 ecstasy pills and 12.2 grams of marijuana, were destroyed by dissolving and blending them in water before dumping them.
Narcotics and Intelligence director Sr. Comr. Hermansyah said police had destroyed the drugs in order to prevent their misuse by any party. The move was sanctioned by the court and witnessed by representatives from relevant agencies, as well as drug suspects.
"The entire haul was seized from six suspects who were arrested in Pekanbaru and Rokan Hilir regency in an operation held from Jan. 21 to 31," revealed Hermansyah.
