POLICE are continuing their search for three men who robbed the Mobil service station on Jerusalem Rd in Nabua before making an unsuccessful attempt to rob the Pacific Energy Service Station in Laucala Beach Estate on Monday night.
Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the three men hired a taxi and then overpowered the driver before tying him up and dumping him in the boot.
The taxi was later found at Koka Place in Kinoya. According to Insp Sokomuri, there has been no arrest.
The Mobil service station belongs to the Tappoo group of companies.
National sales manager Jignesh Chauhan said no one was injured in the incident, and they're not sure how much money was stolen as auditors were yet to submit a report.
According to Pacific Energy, the robbers were not able to get inside their service station.
In the meantime, the Fiji Taxi Union is concerned about the incident, with assistant general secretary Harish Chandra saying this is the second such incident of a taxidriver being tied up in his own cab this month.
Last Tuesday, he said, a taxi was hired in Ba for a drive to Lautoka.
Mr Chandra said that midway through the trip the driver was assaulted and dumped in the boot.
Police are seeking the help of the community to find the suspects.
