Jakarta – Members of a joint team comprising the Jakarta Military Police, the National Police and Customs and Excise arrested two Indonesian Military (TNI) personnel on Saturday for allegedly possessing drugs, a top military official has said.

The two military personnel are identified only as HJS and H, who are both members of the Indonesian Army.

"Based on the information we gathered, the joint team arrested two personnel at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport for allegedly carrying drugs," Jakarta Military Command spokesperson Col. Kristomei Sianturi said on Monday as quoted by kompas.com.
