Man arrested with meth in Wailoaloa

Community support through the sharing of information led to the arrest of a man following the discovery of clear crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Operations (ACP) Livai Driu said the raid was conducted in Wailoaloa yesterday afternoon, through joint efforts by the Western Division Narcotics and K9 Unit.

He said the team executed the search at the business premises where they were informed that a few employees were residing on the premises.

K9 capabilities were deployed which led to the discovery of two plastics containing white crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine.

The suspect was arrested and remains in custody at the Namaka Police Station.

ACP Driu said unlawful possession of illicit drugs continues to top the list of offences registered on a monthly basis.

He stressed the momentum of policing efforts in curbing the illicit drug trade will continue to increase, as the sharing of information and support grows.
