Duo arrested and charged in Kadavu drug raid

Two men are expected to appear at the Suva Magistrates Court today after being charged with one count each of unlawful possession of illicit drugs.

This after a successful raid conducted by the Police Special Response Unit last week which resulted in the uprooting of more than thirty green plants confirmed to be marijuana from two farms at Nakaunakoro village in Kadavu.

Police say the team upon following old tracks beside this village spotted a farmhouse covered with tarpaulin whereby the two men were found inside.

“Upon checking, officers seized two big pot plants consisting of 30 small green plants confirmed to be marijuana beside the farmhouse, and when questioned, both agreed it belonged to them.

“Further interrogation had also resulted in the uprooting of two more green plants from a farm owned by one of them.

“Both men were escorted to Suva and will be appearing today.”
