Police raid

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, May 29, 2014

POLICE have questioned and released a 34-year-old farmer of Tavea in Bua who was allegedly found in possession of a sachet suspected to contain marijuana.

Spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said the farmer was released on Monday pending further investigations.

The sachet was found at the farmer's house by his mother and she reported the matter to police.

Twelve pots with 16 plants believed to be marijuana that were confiscated following a raid on a separate property were now in police custody.

Insp Sokomuri said the 56-year-old caretaker of Vatudamu Estate in Savusavu had been questioned in relation to this.

He said these situations prompted police to issue a fresh warning that the law would not tolerate those found in possession of drugs.

"People found in possession of marijuana or other drugs for that matter will face the full brunt of the law. We are warning people not to cultivate or sell such drugs because it's illegal."
