Police have urged members of the public to alert them if they find parcels in public ar­eas containing illicit drugs.

A statement from Police Spokes­person Ana Naisoro confirmed that this comes in the wake of discover­ies of more brown parcels allegedly containing methamphetamine.

First discovery

On August 30 two discoveries were made.

The first was along a bay in Tave­uni where a man, who was out at sea, noticed a brown covered parcel similar to the earlier discoveries and handed over the parcel at the Taveuni Police Station.

Second discovery

In the second finding, a similar brown package was found on an is­land in the Lau Group.

On September 5, six parcels were found on an island in the Yasawa Group and were handed over to Po­lice.

A day after, another discovery was made in the same group of islands and on the same day another brown package was handed over to Taveu­ni Police.

Members of the public are re­quested to call toll free number 3318 529 if they have any information or may have made similar discover­ies of cocaine or know if anyone is selling the illicit substances.

Any person, who without lawful authority acquires, supplies pos­sesses, manufactures, cultivates, uses or administers an illicit drug; or engages in any dealings with any other person for the transfer, transport, supply, use, manufac­ture, offer, sale, import or export of an illicit drug, commits an offence and will be prosecuted under the Il­licit Drugs Control Act 2004.
