Officers from the Police Special Response Unit uprooted more than 11,000 plants believed to be marijuana from five different farms in Kadavu yesterday.

Chief Operations Officer ACP Abdul Khan said the officers were deployed last week to support drug operations in Kadavu.

The farms were found along the border of the Lavidi and Namajiu terrain.

ACP Khan says investigations are ongoing to identify the owner of the farms and more information has been forthcoming about the cultivation of the illicit drugs in other parts of the island.
