The police in Samoa have raided a major market in Apia on suspicion that drugs were on sale.

A police source told the Samoa Observer a raid was conducted at Fugalei market on Friday morning local time but could give few details.

However, a market seller says more than 20 police officers raided the market searching for marijuana pushers.

Another man who saw the raid said marijuana was found by police on one man and he was taken to the station.

The paper reports raids also took place at Vailoa and Falelauniu.
