THE police have confirmed an investigation has commenced following the discovery of two more parcels suspected of containing illicit drugs at the Nadi Airport Post Office.
This follows the discovery of a suspicious package of about 480 grams that was intercepted by Customs officials last week. The package was later confirmed to contain illicit drugs.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the other two parcels arrived on a different flight from Hong Kong last week and were discovered by a Customs officer of Namaka.
She said the two parcels were also allegedly being sent to the same forwarding address as the first package discovered last week.
"The alleged illicit substance has been sent for testing as investigations continue," Ms Naisoro said in a police report.
A man has been charged in relation to the first drug find. He has appeared in the Nadi Magistrates Court charged with one count of unlawful possession of illicit drugs.
Meanwhile, Australian Federal Police drug analysts will be requested to analyse the latest drug haul in Nadi when the need arises, says police chief operations officer Rusiate Tudravu.
"At the moment we are still utilising our CID officers and using local resources," said Mr Tudravu.
He said the Fiji police always worked with the AFP in regards to cases that impacted the region. The AFP has previously provided their expertise and use of equipment to help solve crimes.
