Jakarta (ANTARA) - The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) arrested four people for possessing hundreds of kilograms of hashish at 03.09 p.m. local time in Jakarta on Thursday, BNN Deputy Chief for Eradication, Arman Depari, said.

The hashish was brought from Aceh to Jakarta using a truck carrying vegetables, gas cylinders, mechanical tools and a compressor, he said.

The BNN official said the hashish was hidden in an iron box aboard the truck.

After unloading vegetables at the Kramatjati wholesale market in East Jakarta, the truck was headed to Kalimalang to unload the mechanical tools and gas cylinders, he said.

"They were supposed to move the items to their rented house," he said

BNN has, so far, found some 80 kilograms of hashish from four gas cylinders it opened with the help of officers from the fire department, he said.

He believed that hundreds of kilograms of hashish are still hidden in the other gas cylinders, which have not yet been opened.

Based on the results of an investigation conducted, a person who is now at the Cirebon correctional facility in West Java controlled the hashish syndicate, Depari said.

"The hashish was supposed to be circulated in Jakarta and West Java," he said.
