'Another Aussie arrested over drugs in Bali'

ANOTHER Australian has been arrested for alleged drug possession on the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

Police said the 50-year-old man, originally from Melbourne but who has been living in Bali, was caught at his home with marijuana and hashish.

The drugs were allegedly found in a drawer at the house on Sunday, after the man was interviewed by police.

He was charged under a law that carries a maximum 10 years in jail for drug possession.

Police alleged the man had three packets of marijuana, with a combined weight of 2.7g, and two packets of hashish with a combined weight of 14.4g.

His name was not released.

News of the arrest comes as Australian music DJ Nick Taylor, who is accused of drug possession in Bali, returns to court today for the continuation of his case.

During an earlier hearing, Mr Taylor, 41, of Byron Bay, admitted he was a drug user.

Police allege they found 0.3g of cocaine in Mr Taylor's pocket during a raid on June 10 at a private party on the resort island.
