"WE are coming for you."
That was the warning yesterday from the Fiji Police Force's chief of operations Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu to the only remaining escapee on the run — Isoa Waqa.
ACP Tudravu's warning comes after a joint police, military and Fiji Corrections Services operation captured four of the five escapees at Uduya Point in Lami on Friday night.
He told The Fiji Times yesterday that police would not rest until Waqa was apprehend.
"I just want to let him know that we are not resting and we will get him, I want him to read this in the papers or hear this on the radio," ACP Tudravu said.
"He does not have any other option available to him but to give himself up because we are going to get him."
ACP Tudravu confirmed that the four recaptured escapees were in the custody of authorities who were conducting interviews with them.
However, rumours the escapees were injured in the capture were unable to be verified with ACP Tudravu saying he was unable to comment on the physical status of the four.
ACP Tudravu confirmed that the escapees were linked to the daring daylight bank robbery at the Bank of the South Pacific's Samabula Branch.
"I can confirm that yes we have established a link between the escapees and robbery that occurred at the BSP Samabula branch," he said.
"Any recovery of the stolen items will depend on the results of our interrogations with the four currently in custody," he said.
ACP Tudravu said the escapees were armed with cane knives and pinch bars when they were recaptured on Friday night.
However, he could not confirm whether gunshots were fired during their arrest.
"Police were able to ascertain the whereabouts of the prisoners after a tip-off as a result of the interrogations and we currently have two people in custody for helping them."
ACP Tudravu said police intended to produce the recaptured prison escapees in court at the earliest possible.
