He says officers from the Fiji Detector Dog Unit and Southern Division Task Force were deployed to Cunningham in Suva to search following a tip-off, where they found dried leaves believed to be marijuana packed in small plastics.

In another raid conducted in Suvavou, three men were arrested and escorted to the Lami Police Station following the discovery of plastics containing a white substance believed to be methamphetamine, plastics containing dried leaves believed to be marijuana, smoking apparatuses and syringes.

In Korociriciri, a team of officers searched a 33-year-old for acting suspiciously and found several sachets of dried leaves believed to be marijuana.

ACP Driu adds a team from the Narcotics Division and K9 Unit in Valelevu searched the home of two men, where they found several small plastics containing substances believed to be marijuana and white substances believed to be methamphetamine.
