Puteri Ari Sigit arrested on drugs charges

This is quite astonishing.

Putri Ari Sigit, great granddaughter of former president Soeharto, has been arrested along with five other suspects in a spectacular drugs bust at an unnamed hotel in South Jakarta, only identified as Hotel M on Friday 20 March 2011.

Adding to the flavor of the case, one of those arrested is said to be a policeman (or policewoman).

Most remarkable of all, though, is the astonishing size of the drugs haul - 500 ecstasy pills and a whopping 30 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine with a total street value of Rp14 billion!

But guess what?

Early signs are that the suspects are being treated as drug users rather than drug sellers.

Go figure!
