A STOLEN excavator from Savusavu has been recovered by the police in Labasa.
Northern police commander SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau yesterday said the heavy machine was discovered in Wailevu.
"We have recovered the machine and now we are finalising some loose ends in the case," he said.
"Some suspects have been identified and we are going to arrest them soon for interrogation. Investigations into the matter still continue."
SSP Lutunacaucau has once again appealed to the public not to take items that don't belong to them.
"If you know it's not yours, don't take it or else you will have to answer to the law," he added
