A couple were produced at the Suva Magistrates Court after they were found with more than 400 grams of methamphetamine.

The two are alleged to have imported the illicit drug sometime between the 10th to the13th of October.

The initial discovery was made by a Customs officer at the Nadi International Airport when he noticed a suspicious package that arrived from the United States which contained items for a baby.

Upon further analysis, two bottles were found containing plastics containing white powder which were later tested positive as methamphetamine.

As part of a controlled delivery and operation, the first suspect who is a woman in her 20s picked up the parcel from Raiwaqa whereby she informed officers that she was picking up the items on behalf of her husband.

The two have been jointly charged with one count of unlawful importation of illicit drugs while the woman faces an additional count of unlawful possession of illicit drugs.
