“SWABS collected from items seized from inside Mo Chuisle – the yacht that illegally entered Solomon Islands last month- have tested positive for a drug called amphetamine.
“Police Commissioner Mostyn Mangau revealed this on Thursday during the police weekly media conference at the Rove Police headquarters.
“Mr Mangau said a chemical liquid found in a plastic bag inside the yacht’s cabin was tested positive for amphetamine.
“Amphetamines are highly addictive drugs that stimulate the central nervous system.
“Mr Mangau said police also found parcels during their search inside Mo Chuisle which were linked to parcels and drugs found on another yacht that was recently arrested by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in Australia.
“The investigation comprised of Australian police in collaboration with agencies from the United Kingdom (UK) and New Caledonia.”
