A 49-year-old man has been charged with unlawful possession of illicit drugs after he was found with a suitcase filled with marijuana.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Operations Livai Driu says the arrest and seizure of the marijuana was a result of yet again the sharing of information from concerned members of the public, which is encouraging.
ACP Driu says the Labasa Taskforce team had received a tip alleging the man was in possession of illicit drugs.
The man was stopped outside a hotel along the main street in Labasa and searched, whereby a zip lock bag containing some dried marijuana leaves was found in his possession.
ACP Driu says a search was also conducted in the man’s vehicle which led to the discovery of a bag containing several branches of marijuana.
