POLICE have confiscated about two kilograms of what is suspected to be illicit drugs after investigations into a robbery.
Director operations Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu confirmed the bust but said they had to wait until a test was completed to identify the drugs.
ACP Tudravu said an investigation was still in progress.
The Sunbeam Transport office in Samabula was robbed on Sunday, January 19.
About $80,000 was stolen from Sunbeam.
According to staff members, armed men rushed into the office and took the company safe.
Police investigation into the matter led them to the suspects over the weekend.
Among the items found by the police was two kilograms of what is suspected to be cocaine and ice.
Ice is a form of the drug methamphetamine.
Police have also confirmed that a suspect had been charged and would be produced in court.
ACP Tudravu said police would get to the bottom of the matter.
In 2004, local and transnational police busted the biggest methamphetamine lab in the southern hemisphere in Laucala Beach. This led to the arrest of Jason Zhong.
Police have not ruled out the possibility of a local manufacture of methamphetamine.
