Burglars on the run

Salaseini Moceiwai
Monday, April 14, 2014

A SEARCH is still in progress for a suspect who allegedly stole cash and items from a Labasa hair salon last week.

North Police Commander SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said the suspect stole about $400, a laptop and mobile phone and other accessories.

"The salon owners were in the process of closing down their shop when the suspect abruptly entered and stole the items," he said.

"No one has been taken in for questioning yet. We have been given leads to the whereabouts of the suspect but we still have had no luck.

However, we are investigating the matter."

The situation has prompted the police to issue a fresh warning for people to keep a lookout for burglars.

"Be careful of your properties and always ensure your homes and shops are safely and securely locked."

SSP Lutunacaucau also pleaded with the public to come forward with any information that could help their investigation.

He said they would continue their search until they located the suspect.
