An illegal drug confiscated by police from the Post Office in Honiara remains at Rove though it was ordered to be destroyed.

The drug was confirmed as methamphetamine and was posted from an European address to a known post number in Honiara.

SBMOnline had confirmed with Solomon Post that through INTERPOL, police here were alerted of the suspected drug as it was on its way to Honiara in the later part of 2023.

On its arrival, police had been monitoring the parcel for its recipient to collect it, however, that person didn’t show up during the monitoring period.

Our sources from the Post confirmed that the drug was taken by Forensics Police to Rove.

It was the Forensic Team that confirmed that it was the banned drug, methamphetamine.

We sent countless queries for the Police Media Team but they were unable to respond to our questions.

However, SBMOnline through its other police sources confirmed that the drug was still with the police.

SBMOnline was further informed by its police sources that recently the DPP Office had ordered the Forensic to destroy the drug.

DPP’s orders were based on the fact that the drug is dangerous, illegal and no one was linked to it.

However, they were unable to do that as the drug had been moved to the Exhibit Division.

Our sources said the drug was moved to Exhibition on the advice of a senior police officer and remains there today even though it should be destroyed some time ago as advised by the DPP.

Police sources said it is illegal for them to keep any confiscated items against the advice of the courts and the DPP for its destruction.
