Police have raided 185 drug targets in Suva and more than 200 targets along the Suva/ Nausori corridor however they have to continue to raid these places as they continue to get into the trade again.

Head of Drug Intelligence Unit, ASP Anare Masitabua says Police need the assistance of everyone to catch the drug dealers.

He says people should call him directly on 9905472 if they have any information.

This follows comments made by a member of the public in the Leadership Fiji National Dialogue on Substance Abuse on why Police cannot locate and raid all places selling drugs as he says that if you sit in any taxi in Suva, the driver would know where to go and buy drugs from.

Masitabua also says people are mixing all sorts of substances including fentanyl and rat poison.

Fentanyl is estimated to be 10,000 times stronger than morphine.

It is used to sedate large animals like elephants.

Just a few crystals can cause an overdose in a human.
