    Police in Ha’apai have seized 21 kilograms of illicit drugs, local news media reports said this week.

    The details of the seizure and the drugs were still unknown.

    Radio FM 87.5 broadcaster Siaosi Lavaka reported the seizure on the station’s 5pm news bulletin on Monday but did not give any further details.

    Nuku’alofa Police had been contacted for comment.

    The seizure came after Tonga Police seized about $2m of methamphetamine at Fua’amotu Airport last month.

    A 59-year-old man was arrested after the seizure of 1.9kg of meth which has a street value of  about $2 million pa’anga.
