Arrests continue to be made in both the rural and urban centers for drug related offences throughout the country this past week.

Chief Operations Officer, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Livai Driu says in Vunisea, Kadavu, two men were arrested after they were found with dried leaves believed to be marijuana.

ACP Driu says in the Eastern Division arrests were made in Nausori, Nakasi and Levuka where the suspects were found with branches and dried leaves believed to be marijuana.

He also says three men were arrested by the Labasa Taskforce after they were found with sachets of dried leaves believed to be marijuana while in Savusavu, a raid in Naqere led to the discovery of large bags containing dried leaves believed to be marijuana.

The Chief Operations Officer further says while the arrests are being made for those alleged to be trading the illicit drugs, parallel operations are being conducted targeting those involved in the cultivation of marijuana throughout Fiji.

He adds it is encouraging to receive information from members of the public as every arrest is making an impact in curbing the illegal activity.

Police assures members of the public that all information and tips provided will be kept confidential.

Members of the public are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers Fiji on 919 should they wish to share information that could assist with tackling the illicit drug trade.
