A combined team of police officers from White River and Honiara Central Police stations on Wednesday confiscated marijuana and the illegal local brew, kwaso at Karaina roadside and Savo heights, at White River in West Honiara.

The raid was in response to information supplied by the public alleging the selling of marijuana and kwaso alongside the road.

Three males have been arrested by police in relation to the confiscated items and the trio were interrogated yesterday.

Officer Commanding White River Police Station, Inspector Walter Manefakale says, “I am pleased with the outcome and cooperation of the public by supplying the information which led to the raid.

“I urge more members of the communities to provide information to police to ensure those who continue selling and brewing of kwaso and as well as the dangerous drug, marijuana are brought to face justice.

“I want to remind the public and communities, that it’s unlawful to grow, use, sell and possess marijuana, while it’s illegal to brew kwaso and sell without approval from the Minister concerned.”
