The guitarist was arrested in the Pancoran area, South Jakarta, on Saturday at 9.00 p.m. West Indonesia Time. The South Jakarta Precinct Police Chief, Grand Commissioner Budhi Susianto, confirmed the arrest.
"Yes, indeed, the investigators of the South Jakarta Investigation Unit and Drugs (Sateskoba) arrested a man with the initials RS, who admits to being the guitarist for the band [that goes by the initial] G," said Grand Commissioner Police Budhi Susianto, in a statement quoted by Pikiran-Rakyat.com from PMJ News.
The police also secured evidence in the form of marijuana weighing 8 grams and one roll used for marijuana. According to the police, the RS's arrest was based on a public report who saw the suspicious activity from the suspect.
It is later confirmed that RS was not arrested alone, as the police also arrested another person with the initials AR.
Regarding the arrest, the public suspected that the guitarist with the initials RS for the band with the initial G was Robi Satria, who is currently an active member of the band named Geisha.
It was observed as netizens' comments flooded on the Instagram account of the band @geishaindonesia. In a post uploaded on March 19, 2022, there were seen netizens giving their speculations about the arrest of RS.
"If R is indeed the guitarist of this band, it would have been the third time [he got arrested]," an Instagram account commented.
"Is it Roby again?" said another one. "Does the initial G refers to Geisha?" added a netizen.
"Why is it so quick, bro. It's been 3 times... Even Pakde Joko [Indonesia's President Joko Widodo] hasn't even had his 3rd period [of the presidency]," said one netizen.
Previously, the guitarist of the Geisha had twice been arrested by the police for alleged drug abuse. Until now, there has been no further information regarding the arrest of RS by the police.
