Police arrested seven people in the on-going fights against illicit drugs last Thursday night from a residence at Vaini.

Police seized 37.44 grams of methamphetamine, 201.67 grams of cannabis and over TOP$3,000 pa’anga cash.

The seven arrested includes 5 men between the ages of 28 to 45 and two women aged 18 and 20.

All of the accused are from Vaini and they are remanded in custody while investigation continues.

The acting deputy Police Commissioner Tevita Vailea says that these arrests show that those who are seeking to profit from the harm these drugs cause can continue to expect to be targeted by Police.
