Fiji Times journalist Theresa Ralogaivau was released from police custody at 4.45pm this afternoon.
She was taken in for questioning at the Labasa Police Station at 10am this morning without being charged.
Sources say the interim regime weren't happy with her story headlined "Drug Terror," which appeared in the Fiji Times on Monday May 11.
Her story was about how the police were close to arresting four men who terrorised families at Baulevu outside Labasa over the weekend.
Her story was confirmed by police spokesman Atunaisa Sokomuri and he was quoted in the story.
Since her arrest, Sokomuri has denied he spoke to the journalist.
Ralogaivau is the fifth local reporter to be detained.
