Charged: drugs found hidden in food

Tongan Police have charged a 33-year-old man from Kolofoʻou after illicit drugs were found to be hidden in food intended to be given to his brother in a cell at Nukuʻalofa Police Station.

Samuela Hafoka was at the Police Station while Police were conducting normal search on the food but disappeared once he noticed the drugs had been discovered.

He was later arrested and charged with possession of cannabis and an illicit drug.

The food was intended to be given to his brother Tevita Hafoka who was in jail awaiting further court hearings after he was charged with the murder of a 24-year-old soldier in  July this year in the Central Business District.
