Fiji police seize another tonne of meth in major drug bust

Police in Fiji have seized another tonne of meth, less than a week after three tonnes were captured.

The Fiji Police Force posted images from the latest bust to its Facebook, showing plastic containers filled with the drug stacked towards the ceiling.

Some was also sealed in kava bags, while a large quantity also appeared to be packaged in 'tile adhesive' wrapping.

Fiji's Assistant Commissioner of Police Mesake Waqa said in total 1.1 tonnes of meth was found in both crystal and powder form.

A 37-year-old businessman from Nadi was in custody in connection to the discovery.

"The Fiji Police Force acknowledges the support of its stakeholders that had assisted in the raid," Waqa said.

"The investigation is in its initial stage and we are pleading to members of the community to assist us with any information in regard to the above find."

This is the second major drug burst within a week, after over three tonnes of methamphetamine were seized from a vacant house under construction in Namaka in Nadi.

Waqa said an investigation is underway to find all those responsible.
