$70k heist

THE management of Nayan's Supermarket in Sports City, Laucala Bay, Suva, watched in amazement as the CCTV footage of a burglary on Sunday evening showed how organised and precise the thieves were as they made off with about $70,000 in cash.

Supermarket manager Neetu Singh said the timing of the burglary was just perfect.

"The timing on the CCTV footage shows that the burglary was done around 10.30pm, I guess that's when Fiji was playing for the third and fourth place," said Ms Singh.

"There is security but Fiji was playing and I guess the thieves know how to use this to their advantage.

"The footage also shows the thieves walking around the supermarket and making phone calls, as if to receive orders from somebody outside."

The thieves entered the supermarket by using pinch-bars to break the locks of the back door and grille.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said police had started their investigations into the burglary but so far no arrests had been made.
