The Fiji Police Force continues to raid inter-island vessels in a bid to curb the transportation of illicit drugs from maritime islands.
Another raid was conducted yesterday which resulted in the seizure of dried leaves believed to be marijuana- wrapped in clear plastic, that was found inside a carton used for rubbish.
The support of shipping company operators has also been great and vital to the success of these raids and the Force appreciates their own efforts in the war on drugs.
The joint operations were conducted by officers from Totogo, K9 team with Fiji Revenue and Customs Officials, Drugs, and WATER POLICE.
Preliminary work was conducted before the K9 and other officers were able to board the vessel once berthed at the Narain Jetty.
Someone had allegedly disposed of the parcel of dried leaves in a carton used for rubbish which was discovered by officers during the search.
No seizure is ever considered small if it means keeping illicit substances from causing harm.
The snap raids will be conducted on a regular basis.
