Police at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport took an American citizen, Thomas Michael Misttreta, into custody on Thursday, March 23, 2017, as quoted from Bali Discovery.
Misttreta, who lists his home address as Manassas Park, Virginia, USA, was arrested with a rifle magazine filled with live rounds of ammunition as he was preparing to check-in for an international flight.
Metrobali.com said the magazine contained 12 rounds of 50-caliber ammunition. Misttreta did not have the permits and licenses in his possession required for a private citizen to carry firearms or ammunition in Indonesia.
The magazine and bullets were discovered during an x-ray inspection of the American’s luggage.
Police continue to hold the American and his luggage while they investigate the case.
