The Old Bali Blog « Bad timing: Frenchman arrested for cocaine possession in Kuta, Bali

Thierry Verchere, a 46-year-old French jewelry designer, is nailed on a heavy drugs charge after reportedly walking into an active drug bust in Kuta, South Bali, with 112 grams of cocaine on him.

Apparently it was all for his own consumption.

Bizarrely dressed up by the Drugs Squad in a fetching pink-glittery mask - no doubt left over from a drug-infested New Year's bash - he'll be looking at another 20 years' holiday on the Island of Dreams.
