Police have confirmed that they don’t have any leads at the moment on the packs of cocaine that were found on some maritime islands in the country.
Divisional Police Commander East, Kasiano Vusonilawe says they have given the file to the CID headquarters to conduct an investigation on where the drugs came from and who it belongs to.
Vusoniwale says for their officers in the Eastern division, they don’t only confine their search on cocaine but other drugs as well which are marijuana and methamphetamine.
He says that they will leave for the maritime islands mainly the Lomaiviti group next month to see if people have cocaine in their possession.
Vusoniwale mentions that if people handover the cocaine willingly, they will not be charged but if found in possession of it, they will then be taken to task.
The DPC East says even though their boat is under maintenance at the moment, they will not delay their trip to the maritime islands.
To date, eighty-nine bars of cocaine have been found in separate discoveries.
Most of the discoveries were made in the Lau Group.
Meanwhile, the amnesty period that was put in place to allow those who may have found the bars of cocaine expired last Monday.
