Update: 11:11AM FOUR people are being questioned by police for their alleged involvement in the theft of $50,000 in new-look currency.
And police have also recovered more than $30,000 of the stolen money.
The special task force team has so far managed to ascertain that there
was an alleged security breach while escorting the money from the
central bank to the bank in question.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said one suspect was arrested in Taveuni
with his wife with more than $12,000 in their possession.
Ms Naisoro said two security officers were arrested and found with a combined total of $17,400 in new $100 bills.
She said the third security officer was arrested in Nadi.
She said the special task force team was working around-the-clock to make more recoveries within the next 24 hours.
""These notes have no monetary value, therefore it is advisable to turn
them in rather than trying to use them and end up getting caught on the
wrong side of the law," said Ms Naisoro.
Police have urged people to call 917 or contact their nearest police
station or community post if they have any information on the stolen
