Police Commissioner Egon Lincoln Keil led the operation which also arrested 4 people who are now under police custody.

Faleatiu is well known to police as an officer was shot dead there during a raid in the 1970s and also injured police officers and damaged police vehicles and a villager shot dead during an early morning raid several years ago.

According to Commissioner Keil, the area where they found the illegal drugs was high up in the mountains and the officers involved had to walk a long way to the farm.
