BALI – Indonesian customs said Saturday they have arrested a German Hans Peter Naumann 48, for allegedly trafficking cocaine onto the resort island of Bali.

Customs official Djarot Utomo said Peter Naumann, was arrested Friday after he arrived on a flight from Bangkok.

Officers had Naumann X-rayed soon after suspecting something was hidden in his stomach, Utomo said.

Eleven white capsules filled with cocaine were found in Naumann’s underwear, and doctors found six others inside his stomach, all worth $65,000, Utomo said.

Police are still investigating and Naumann hasn’t been charged yet.

Indonesia has extremely strict drug laws and convicted smugglers are often executed. More than 140 people are on death row, mostly for drug crimes. About a third of them are foreigners.

Last year, a British woman was sentenced to death for smuggling $2.5 million worth of cocaine into Bali in her luggage.
