THERE was a major break-in early yesterday morning at the Vodafone Triangle store in Suva.

Thieves managed to break through the main show glass and stole items believed to be worth thousands of dollars.

Vodafone Fiji manager sponsorship and public relations Liga Gukisuva said their team was still carrying out the stocktake to ascertain the value of stolen items.

Mr Gukisuva said the shop normally kept stocks of mobile phones, tablet computers and recharge cards.

When The Fiji Times arrived at the scene yesterday morning, police officers from the forensic unit were carrying out investigations. Blood stains were visible on the floor where the thieves entered after breaking the show glass.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri confirmed the incident and said according to eyewitnesses someone allegedly broke the show glass and entered the shop.

"The man was allegedly seen running towards the Suva Bus Stand by the eyewitnesses," Inspector Sokomuri said.

He said while investigations continued, police were looking for some unknown men who were allegedly involved in the incident.

Inspector Sokomuri said police were yet to ascertain the total value of the goods stolen from the Vodafone Triangle outlet.
