Police in Tonga have arrested 10 people on drugs charges.

A search on Saturday in Malapo saw the arrest of seven men and three women who were found with 96 packets of cannabis and money.

They remain in custody as the investigation continues.

Police say they are committed to disrupt and detect the supply of drugs because of the harm the illegal activity causes.
