Police are searching for the owners of five different farms in Kadavu where more than 11,000 plants believed to be marijuana were uprooted.
Police Chief Operations Officer ACP Abdul Khan says officers from the Special Response Unit were deployed last week to support drug operations in Kadavu.
The farms were found along the border of the Lavidi and Namajiu terrain.
ACP Khan says investigations are ongoing and more information has been forthcoming about the cultivation of the illicit drugs in other parts of the island.
