One of four people arrested by police in Tonga for alleged possession of marijuana is a 14 year old student.

Radio Tonga reports the arrests including that of the 14 year old were made over the past few days.

Acting Chief Superintendent of the Nuku’alofa Police Station Tevita Vailea said they also arrested a 31-year-old woman of Tokomololo and charged her with possession of marijuana.

Two others, a 17-year-old of Kolonga and a 36-year-old man of Houmakelikao have also been charged with possession of the drug.

The average of marijuana seized ranged from 11 to 96 grams.
