Fireworks factory raided in Tangerang

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Wed, November 1, 2017

A community unit (RW) head identified as Ade Muhtar has been detained by police for allegedly operating an illegal fireworks factory in Cijantra village, Pagedangan, Tangerang.

Joint personnel raided the factory on Tuesday at 10 a.m. after receiving reports from nearby residents, according to a statement by Tangerang Police crimes unit chief Adj. Comr. Alexander Yurikho.

"The workers had left the place when we arrived at the factory. But one of them, Ade Muhtar, was [spotted] around the location, which then, along with evidence, was taken to Pagedangan Police station for further investigation," Alexander said.

In the raid, police confiscated more than 25 packages of fireworks of varying sizes, as well as materials to make the fireworks, such as 10 kilograms of sulfur and 2 kg of potassium.

Police alleged the fireworks were made by hand as they found four rubber-layered hammers and four firework molds.
Alexander said his team had secured the factory and were still looking for three other workers.

Last week, Tangerang was rocked by a blaze at a fireworks factory operated by PT Panca Buana Cahaya Sukses in Kosambi that killed 49 of its 103 workers and injured dozens others.

Illegal drugs factory raided in South Tangerang

South Tangerang Police raided a factory producing illegal drugs in Jatiuwung on Thursday, seizing one million excimer and tramadol pills.

The police’s criminal unit head, Adj. Comr. Ahmad Alexander, said they obtained information about an illegal pharmaceutical factory at a warehouse in Tekno Park II that produced and marketed the drugs.

“The factory had been operating for three months with a turnover of Rp 900 million (US$66,500),” Ahmad said on Thursday.

Six people were arrested and police are still hunting for the factory’s owner.

The drugs were allegedly sold in small shops in Tangerang.

Excimer is sedative while tramadol is used as a painkiller.
