Police yes­ter­day raided a home at Tavakubu Road in Lau­toka for drugs. The dou­ble storey home was swarmed by more than 20 Police of­fi­cers just af­ter 7am. The owner of the house and three of his friends were later taken to the Lau­toka Police Sta­tion where they were still be­ing ques­tioned last night. The raid was be­lieved to have been car­ried out by of­fi­cers from Suva and Lau­toka. A wit­ness, who did not wish to be named, said the Police of­fi­cers car­ried some bags out, but it was still not con­firmed last night whether they con­tained drugs. He said the owner lived by him­self in the bot­tom flat while the top flat was rented out.

The owner’s ex-wife is be­lieved to be in Aus­tralia, but a wit­ness said while he lived alone, friends used to visit him. Police spokesper­son Ana Naisoro con­firmed the raid, but could not re­lease fur­ther details be­cause she was still wait­ing for in­for­ma­tion to be sent from Lau­toka.
