Fiji Times journalist Theresa Ralogaivau is still in police custody in Labasa.
She was taken in this morning after her story headlined "Drug Terror" appeared in the Fiji Times on Monday May 11.
Her story was about how 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 she quoted him in it.
However since her arrest, Sokomuri has denied he spoke to the journalist.
Ralogaivau is the fifth local journalist to be detained by police.
