In Denpasar, Bali, an Australian man, identified as Troy Smith, faces severe legal consequences after being arrested for allegedly attempting to sell crystal methamphetamine. The 49-year-old suspect, apprehended on April 30 at a hotel on the tourist island, was found in possession of 3.19 grams of the drug.

While his wife, known only as TIM, was also detained, she was cleared of involvement in the drug-related activities. Smith has been charged with drug transaction, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a hefty fine of 10 billion rupiah ($622,000). Additionally, he faces charges of drug possession, which could result in a maximum 12-year prison term and a fine of up to 8 billion rupiah.

Authorities conducted a urine test on Smith, confirming the presence of methamphetamine in his system. According to Indonesian police, Smith received the drugs through a package sent by a friend in Australia, which was disguised as a Colgate toothpaste tube containing 3.15 grams of crystal meth. While Smith did not appear at the press conference, Indonesian authorities typically present drug suspects to the media.

Despite media reports identifying Smith's wife as Tracy Ijusa, there is no evidence linking her to the drug-related activities. Indonesia's stringent drug laws, including the death penalty for traffickers, highlight the gravity of the situation. The country currently has numerous individuals on death row for drug-related offenses, underscoring the severity of the legal repercussions faced by those involved in drug trafficking activities.
