Police operation teams continue to arrest people found with drugs from the five divisions, with three people in custody following the discovery of white powder believed to be cocaine and one zip-lock plastic containing dried leaves believed to be marijuana.

Assistant Commissioner of Police – Operations Livai Driu says the three were arrested in Waiyavi, Lautoka.

In a separate case, ACP Driu says an operation team in Lautoka had stopped and searched a vehicle along Kings Road near Lovu yesterday, where they found several clear plastic bags containing white crystals believed to be methamphetamine.

He says two men aged 32 and 23 years were arrested and remain in custody.

ACP Driu says dried leaves believed to be marijuana were also seized in two separate reports of alleged Unlawful Possession of Illicit Drugs.

Four men and a woman were arrested in relation to the two reports in Lautoka.

ACP Driu says close to 400 plants believed to be marijuana were seized at Nailawa Settlement, Navosa, following community outreach in the area.

He says the farm owner is known to the Police as investigations continue.

All seized substances and plants have been sent for analysis.
