Drugs suspects in custody

Four men are in Police custody at the Navua Police Station after they were allegedly found with drugs.

It is alleged the suspects were travelling from Suva to Navua when they were caught with drugs inside their vehicle.

Navua Criminal Investigation Department, Inspector Elia Waqanidrola, said: “One of our sources had informed us about the drug.”

Inspector Waqanidrola said their team then set up roadblocks at Pacific Habour and continued their search for the suspects.

“When we were conducting our investigation, we found some dried leaves in their vehicle. It is believed to be marijuana plants and they have sent those plants for testing at the Koronivia Research Station.”

The suspect’s vehicle has been seized as well. The suspects are expected to appear in the Navua Magistrates Court next Monday.
