A joint collaboration between the Fiji Police Force, the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service, and the Fiji Immigration Department has resulted in the arrest of four men charged with the alleged importation of methamphetamine.

On the 12th of this month, a customs officer seized a consignment of nutritional dietary supplements sent from the United States that tested positive for liquid methamphetamine.

Police were alerted, and a controlled operation was conducted by the Fiji Police Narcotics Bureau, which led to the arrest of the four men involved.
