THE police have confirmed that a 39-year-old local has been detained following the interception of a suspicious package by Customs officials at Nadi International Airport last week.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the parcel allegedly contained illicit drugs.

Ms Naisoro also confirmed the forwarding address on the package sent from Hong Kong was used to conduct a raid last Saturday where numerous other suspected illegal drugs were also discovered

"The parcel allegedly containing illicit drugs was sent from Hong Kong last week and the matter was initially attended to by Customs officers and later referred to the police for further investigations," Ms Naisoro said.

"A raid was conducted at the forwarding address on the suspicious package on Saturday afternoon and other alleged illegal substances were also found."

She said investigations were ongoing and more information would be released at a later stage.

It reported yesterday that the raid was conducted on a building near Nadi International Airport.

This newspaper was reliably informed that the package was sent to Fiji from Hong Kong on March 18.
