Solomon Islands police are warning people who put up roadblocks to demand money that they face arrest.
The police warning comes after complaints that roadblocks had recently been set up in central Guadalcanal, with people demanding money for road repairs.
The provincial police commander in Honiara, chief superintendent Stanley Riolo said "if members of the public feel they should assist the community by repairing a road, then they should do it... and not demand road users pay for the service".
If people genuinely try to assist communities by volunteering services then that's good, he said.
But the police will not tolerate anyone who blocks a road and demands money simply because they have filled some potholes.
