Deputy of Narcotic directorate Puti Yuni Setiawan explained that the authorities were awaiting results of Cristian’s urine test before making him a suspect.
‘Police found a plastic clip containing purple powder suspected as being ecstasy and in a wardrobe police found a paper rolled with leaves and seed that is suspected of containing marijuana,’ he told The West Australian.
‘There was also equipment that can be used as a bong for inhaling smoke from marijuana and to inhale meth.’
Cristian will face 12 years in jail if he is found guilty of drug possession.
