Personnel of the Papua Police’s narcotics division have destroyed 15,000 pills containing a combination of paracetamol, carisoprodol and caffeine (PCC) from an unknown source.


The Papua Police’s narcotics division head Sr. Comr. Ida Agus Komang Ardika said the PCC pills destroyed in an event on Friday were sent from Makassar, South Sulawesi, via a courier service in Jayapura city, Papua. However, the intended recipient failed to appear to pick up the drug package.


“Officers waited for the recipient to come and pick up the package but to no avail; therefore, the pills were confiscated,” said Agus on the sidelines of the event, which was held at the yard of the police’s narcotics division office on Jl. Macan Tutul Dok V Jayapura, Papua, on Friday.


The PCC pills were placed in several packages, with one package containing 50 pills. One strip containing 10 pills has a street value of Rp 300,000 (US$21).


“Usually, the pills are distributed in entertainment venues. People who consume them will feel energized,” said Agus.


Throughout 2017, the narcotics division has so far confiscated 16,000 PCC pills intended for distribution. Most of the pills were sent from Makassar. In Papua, PCC pills are usually distributed in coastal cities, where most nightclubs are located.


Ida Bagus said in 2017, the Papua Police processed 212 drug cases with 261 suspects. Of the total, 164 cases have been taken to court. (ebf)
