“The colt diesel controller, namely GUS (23), admits that he will make a transaction at Jalan Rambutan 3, Pekanbaru,” said Kombes Sunarto quoted from Antara, Thursday (2/2/2023).
The chronology of disclosure begins with officers following GUS to the transaction location. After the suspects were being stalked, a silver car arrived, containing four suspects.
During the arrest attempt, the driver of the car, namely FIR, tried to harm the officer until he had to be shot and eventually died.
“Based on the results of the interrogation, the drugs came from Malaysia at the behest of Marno, who is currently still being searched. So far, only FIR and GUS have communicated with him,” he continued.
Meanwhile, the Riau Regional Police’s Narcotics and Drug Administration, Kombes Pol Yos Guntur, explained that GUS acted as coordinator on direct orders from Marno, while FIR (24) was the controller.

The suspect SUP (40) acted as a ground courier, while BUD (19) and DIL (19) were on the monitoring team.
In accordance with their respective roles, the suspects were promised wages of Rp. 15-20 million. It is planned that the methamphetamine will be stored first in a shop that has just been rented a few days before.
“When checked, the shop is still empty. It hasn’t been implemented yet. The plan is to place methamphetamine there ahead of an order from Malaysia,” explained Yos Guntur.
As a result of their actions, the suspects were charged with Article 114 paragraph (2) in conjunction with Article 112 paragraph (2) in conjunction with Article 132 paragraph (1) of RI Law No. 35 of 2009 concerning Narcotics, with the threat of capital punishment, life imprisonment or a maximum of 20 years in prison.
