​Drug and home brew arrests at 9 mile

Three Chimbu men were arrested at the nine mile market outside Port Moresby today (Saturday 19th December).

The two men, aged 25 and 38, were arrested with almost 5kg of marijuana after police were tipped off by members of the community.

Police report that the two men are now being detained and will most likely be charged with drug possession and intent to sell.

Meantime, two youths from Goilala in Central Province were picked up around the nine mile area at lunch time today.

The two, aged 15 and 17, were under the influence of home brew alcohol and trying to pick fights with passengers at the main bus stop area.

Both youths are now at the Boroko police cells.
