The common sight of football boots and canvas shoes hanging from power lines in some of the capital city’s surburbs may have a more illicit meaning behind it.

It has been confirmed by various sources with knowledge of crime trends that shoes hanging on powerlines signal the presence of a marijuana seller in the area.

After receiving several tip-offs about the presence of drugs in our neighbourhoods, a Fiji Sun team made a few rounds to check out the neighbourhoods where these were a common sight.

Surprisingly residents of these areas chose to remain tight-lipped about the shoes.

A source who knows the illicit industry well told the Fiji Sun that another sign was an umbrella hanging nearby.

When contacted yesterday, Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said she would respond to questions sent by the Fiji Sun in due course.

Areas visited by the Fiji Sun news team:-

– Raiwai

– Raiwaqa

– Nabua

– Kinoya
