ANOTHER home invasion and in the same Suva neighbourhood as last week, and this time police are asking members of the public to be careful when dealing with ANZ Bank cheques.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said a business executive residing in Namadi Heights was the target of criminals.

She said the perpetrator entered his home and stole assorted items and cash to the value of $5530.

Ms Naisoro added the alleged crime happened on Sunday between 2am and 7am.

She said an unknown person entered the Chinese national's house and stole four laptops, $500 cash and a laptop fan worth $30.

She said also stolen were 30 signed ANZ cheques for the account number 5636406 belonging to the victim's company Tong A. Holdings.

"The cheque numbers range from 3690-3620 and members of the public are requested to keep a lookout for these stolen cheques and call the Samabula Police Station on 338 1222 or 917 if they have any information that could assist in this case," said Ms Naisoro.

She said business owners should also be cautious when dealing with cheques.
