Two people are in Police custody following the uprooting of 484 plants believed to be marijuana at a farm in Nabulini Village, Wainibuka, Tailevu, yesterday.

This is after the Fiji Police Force started their Phase three of ‘Operation Sasamaki’ in the Eastern Division.

Chief operations officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu said the two in custody were alleged to be involved in the cultivation of marijuana.

While acknowledging the public’s co-operation in providing information about marijuana cultivation around the country, ACP Tudravu expressed his concerns and disappointment that someone who was wanted by Police for over a year had yet again been allegedly involved in this illegal activity.

Mesake Tabaka was evading Police since last January when a drug raid was conducted on his farm at Delasese Settlement in Tailevu.  More than 70 plants believed to be marijuana were uprooted.

“This is someone who is known in his community so to say that no one would have seen him or know that he was in the area is hard to believe, which is why I am requesting those who know of his whereabouts and his movement to come forward and help us locate him,” ACP Tudravu said.
