Australian man arrested in Bali for alleged cocaine possession

Bali police have alleged Brendon Luke Johnsson, 43, was selling drugs as well as using them himself.

There has been some confusion of Mr Johnsson's first name, with the Chief of Denpasar District Police Hadi Purnomo referring to him as "Brandon".

He was with his Indonesian girlfriend at a boarding house in Kuta last Saturday when Indonesian police raided the property.

In a raid of her boarding house, they allegedly found a pack of cocaine her pocket, two packets in a sanitary pad package and inside a pillow.

Remi and her boyfriend Johnsson were home and during the search "police found 13 packages of cocaine inside a purse, placed inside a cardboard box located on the floor", Purnomo said.

"Remi admits she gave Bena the four packages and was promised 12 million rupiah ($1123)".

An Australian man is facing 20 years' jail for dealing cocaine to holidaymakers on the resort island of Bali, police said Thursday (Aug 9).

Police arrested Johnson after receiving a tip off from locals that a 20-year-old Indonesian woman was using drugs nearby.

According to ABC News, the accused is Brendon Luke Johnsson, who had previously lived on Queensland's Sunshine Coast before moving to Indonesia.

Indonesia has some of the world's toughest anti-drug laws and drug traffickers can be sentenced to death for carrying more than five grammes of some drugs.

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson said the department was "providing consular assistance to an Australian man detained in Bali".
