    Police have arrested three people with illicit drugs in Nuku’alofa on Wednesday.

    A 31-year-old and a 22-year-old man both from Ngele’ia, and an 18-year-old woman from Fahefa were arrested with 75.44 grams already packed in 100 packets of cannabis.

    Police said the drugs had been prepared for sale.

    The Police Drugs Enforcement Taskforce executed a search warrant at a residence in the early morning Wednesday before they arrested the trio.

    Police sniffer dogs were used during the search.

    “Police will continue to work with the community to prevent the harm illicit drugs cause and the ongoing criminal activity associated with their use,” said Acting Chief Superintendent Tevita Vailea.

    “We encourage anyone who may have information about drug related offending to contact their nearest Police station, or ring 23417 or 922.”

    All three suspects are in police custody to appear at the Fasi magistrate Court on Tuesday 27 November 2018.
