A 21-year-old man is in police custody for allegedly breaking into a vehicle parked at the North Pole Hotel in Labasa.

The man was located in Labasa Town after police immediately responded to the complaint.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the incident happened between 12.45am to 1.30am on Sunday when the suspect tried to force the vehicle doors open.

She said he also tried to get away with some valuable items inside the vehicle.

"The suspect is in police custody and has been charged for one count of theft and damaging property," said Ms Naisoro.

"We continue to warn vehicle owners to be careful with their valuable items.

"Vehicles left unattended with valuable items, even if the cars are locked, may still invite unwanted attention from some people," she said.

She added that people should take extra precaution regarding the security of their properties especially during the upcoming festive season.
