A 27-year-old salesman has been arrested in a joint operation between the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority and the Fiji Police Force’s Trans-national Crime Unit after he allegedly tried to import 200 grams of Methamphetamine into the country.
FRCA CEO Visvanath Das says the parcel arrived at the Post Office through the control delivery by the border police after the drugs was initially detected by a K9 and was tested positive for Methamphetamine.
He says the parcel was then delivered to Suva Post Office and the suspect was arrested.
Das stresses they are working closely with police to intercept drugs to prevent them from entering Fiji adding our borders are safe and they continue to ensure that such hard drugs do not enter Fiji.
Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho says they have gone to great lengths to train the officers and have also included K-9 capabilities who can easily detect suspicious activity as they continue to protect our borders from such illegal activities.
The man will appear in the Suva Magistrates Court this afternoon.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
