A parcel containing Methamphetamine was intercepted by customs officials at the Suva Post Office yesterday.
The illicit drug was concealed in a shampoo bottle which was sent from the United States and addressed to a local woman.
The suspect fled when questioned by Customs Officers upon collecting the parcel.
She was later identified through her Tax Identification Number (TIN).
The Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority’s intelligence team was informed of the drugs earlier this month.
Acting CEO Visvanath Das says the seizure should be a warning to all unscrupulous traders wanting to bring in illegal drugs that FRCA officers and police are vigilant in their work to ensure borders are safe.
Police are now carrying out further investigations.
