POLICE are investigating a break-in at the Good Care Investments Limited shop at Samabula, Suva over the weekend.

Shop owner Vijay Singh said thieves managed to break-in through the back door of the shop and stole $3000 in cash which was kept inside.

When The Fiji Times visited the shop yesterday, tills and money bags were all left open and a number of cheques were scattered on the floor.

Mr Singh said he was not aware of the break-in until he opened his shop at around midday yesterday.

"I don't know when the break-in occurred. When I came to the shop I was surprised to see the back door open and majority of the items scattered on the floor inside the shop," he said.

Mr Singh also claimed that he called the Samabula Police Station immediately but police officers were late to the scene.

He said more was needed to be done to protect investors in the country.

"We do not want to come here and get robbed," Mr Singh said.

He said it was high time now for the law enforcers in the country to get the culprits who committed such offences.
