Samoa police are saying very little about the recent discovery of drugs in a container from the United States on the wharf at Apia.
They have issued a media release saying a man and his wife were arrested last Tuesday.
The woman has since been released on bail but her husband is being held in custody until the pair appear in court next week.
The police have not said whether the drug found in the container was methamphetamine or cocaine.
Neither have they confirmed the size or value of the find.
The press release follows a directive from the prime minister that police issue statements rather than talk directly to the media.
