THE police raided a marijuana farm in Cakaudrove this week.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said although the plants had not matured, it was important for farmers to know that police would continue to fight drug dealing.

"This is not the first time for the police to raid marijuana farms in Cakaudrove and we will continue to do that," Insp Sokomuri said.

"The farm raided by the police did not have many marijuana plants and may not be as big as other farms raided by police but the fact that it was planted remains illegal.

"We are reminding those involved that they will be taken to task when caught by the police."

Insp Sokomuri said the police also worked closely with the community on tip-offs.

"Some public members have assisted us and we are reminding the community that all those involved in illegal activities will pay the price," he said.
