Another Aussie Arrested over Drugs


Bali Police  said on Monday they had arrested an Australian man with a small amount of methamphetamine and two ecstasy pills.

Ricky Rawson, 49, of Melbourne, could face up to 20 years in jail if convicted of possession of illegal drugs, police said.

He was arrested on Saturday at a villa in Seminyak. Police said Rawson was in Bali on holiday.

“At this stage we suspect that he is only an addict, not a distributor,” a police officer told reporters.

Rawson is the latest in a long line of Australians arrested in Bali over drugs, many of whom have been sentenced to long prison terms, while three are on death row.
