Police have successfully raided more than 40 cartons of beer from black markets in Honiara.
Acting Police Commander for Central Honiara Vincent U’ubwe told SIBC News the successful raid resulted from a 30-minute operation in the Bahai area, between six and seven pm yesterday.
Commander U’ubwe says the police also arrested two males and a female suspect following the raid.
The female suspect was released soon after she was arrested, as she had an infant child.
Only the male suspects are in police custody at Rove awaiting further investigation.
The Acting Police Commander says the police will continue with the operation to ensure a peaceful festive season.
He called on the public to work together with the police, to ensure everybody enjoys a crime-free festive season.
