A RAKIRAKI sugarcane grower who discovered live ammunition while clearing an overgrown part of his farm on Thursday has turned over the bullets to the authorities.

West police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia said the farmer made the discovery while weeding.

"His cane knife hit something metallic and as he dug through the dirt he found 10 live rounds," she said.

"He reported the matter to the Rakiraki Police Station and officers carefully collected the bullets. The farmer was questioned and released."

Ms Ragigia said investigations were continuing to determine the type of weapon it would most likely be used for and the age and manufacture of the bullets.

"The rounds have been sent to Suva for analysis, once we ascertain what type of gun and how old the bullets are, we will progress further with our enquiries."
