Police nab suspects

TWO Labasa men are in police custody for being in possession of a bag of seeds believed to be marijuana seeds.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the bag was seized after a successful raid by the Labasa Drug Unit on Thursday.

Ms Naisoro said police initially seized a plastic bag containing the alleged seeds from a 33-year-old labourer in Korovatu outside Labasa.

"After questioning, the suspect also revealed that another farmer was also allegedly involved," she said.

"The 32-year-old was arrested following another raid.

"Both remain in custody as investigations continue."

Ms Naisoro encouraged members of the public to come forward and inform police of those cultivating illegal drugs.

"We will ensure their identities remain anonymous."

Meanwhile, the post-mortem examination has yet to be conducted on the 36-year-old man who died in Bua earlier this week.

Ms Naisoro said the man died from injuries he sustained from a falling tree.
