Warning for youths

POLICE are warning members of the public, particularly young people, not to engage in illegal activities that could hurt their future.

This follows news of a group of youths who appeared in the Nasinu Magistrates Court this week for their alleged involvement in a series of break-ins and thefts.

"The accused allegedly broke into five vehicles, sold the items in Suva and spent the money on alcohol," police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said in a statement.

"They have all been charged with damaging property and theft and also have similar cases pending in court."

Ms Naisoro said it was a worrying trend because it meant the youngsters, all between 15 and 17 years, would be dealing with the law rather than preparing for their future.

"We are urging others in the same age group not to be easily involved in such illegal activities for the sole purpose of a few hours of enjoyment which in turn affects their future.

"We are pleading with parents and guardians to talk to their children about the consequences of getting involved in such activities."
