1. Bali drug arrests
A New Zealand woman Leeza Tracey Ormsby living in Sydney has been arrested in Bali accused of drug possession.
She was reportedly arrested on February 12 but the story was only broken recently.
37-year-old Ormsby is accused of having 132.2 grams of MDMA and 26.06 grams of hashish which was allegedly found inside a villa in Kuta where she was staying.
The woman was on holiday at the time, visiting a friend. Her villa was reportedly ambushed after police found out there might be drugs at a party.
Ormsby could face 20 years in prison if she’s convicted.
According to the SMH, a local source said the amount indicated the woman was dealing rather than using the drugs. ‘‘Judging from the evidence, it’s possible she’s dealing. If [she’s] just a user, why do you need a scale?’’ they said.
