The Commissioner of Police, Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho, is again sending a strong warning that the Fiji Police Force will get those involved in the illegal drug trade in Fiji.

As six people continue to be questioned after a raid on Friday in Namadi Heights by officers from the Nabua Police Station resulting in the discovery of white substances believed to be methamphetamine.

Another drug raid was conducted in Siberia Labasa yesterday resulting in the seizure of more than 700 sachets of dried leaves and seeds believed to be marijuana.

The raid conducted in Namadi on Friday resulted in the seizure of dried leaves believed to be marijuana, apparatus believed to be used in the manufacturing of the illicit substances, cash and other items.

Arrested were two women, and four men, one of which is in his 50s believed to be heading the illegal trade.

As for the raid in Labasa, a man is in custody following a raid conducted at his home by officers who were keeping a close tab on the suspect’s alleged involvement in the illegal trade.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said his officers were relentless in the war against drugs.

“The raids are a testament that my officers are vigilant in keeping tabs on the illegal drug trade and to those involved  let me warn you now that we will get to you.”

Brigadier-General Qiliho said the issue of drugs needed to be taken seriously and those who are consuming, manufacturing or dealing it should think twice about their involvement.

He has also called on the community to assist Police in the fight against drugs.

“The activities of those using and selling are common knowledge to most people however there is a reluctance to give information and while we understand the obvious reservations in doing so, I do urge the community to use the avenues available to give information anonymously  such as Crime Stoppers so we can arrest those involved”.

The public are requested to call Crime Stoppers on 919 or send a message on the Crime Stoppers Fiji Facebook page.
