POLICE have managed to recover some of the stolen items from the recaptured convicts last week.
However, they are remaining mum on the full details of the recovered items.
Fiji Police Force's chief of operations Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu said more details regarding the stolen items would be released today.
"I can confirm that we have recovered some of the stolen property, however, I will be in a better position to give a full briefing on this tomorrow (today)," he said.
ACP Tudravu did not reveal the source that led to the recovery of the items but did confirm the fifth escapee Isoa Waqa remained at large.
He said police were appealing for the assistance of the public in recapturing him.
"We are calling on the public for assistance in capturing this man, just to make it easier for them and easier for us as well," he said.
"We are following leads, however, I cannot divulge which areas around Suva we are currently looking for him in."
ACP Tudravu also declined to comment on the physical status of the four recaptured prisoners in police custody.
When The Fiji Times visited the parents of Tevita Sugu — one of the recaptured prisoners — yesterday, they said Sugu had been taken to the emergency room at Colonial War Memorial Hospital after his capture.
ACP Tudravu also said police continued to investigate and look for those suspected of assisting the escapees while they were on the run.
"It will all eventually come to light but at the moment, we only have two people currently in our custody," he said.
Sugu's parents, who reside at Bilo settlement outside Lami, told The Fiji Times that one of the two men in police custody for allegedly assisting the escapees is Sugu's brother.
The other man in custody is believed to be from the same settlement.
