POLICE have recovered six of the nine tyres that were stolen from a China Railway First Group work site between Nabouwalu and Dreketi.
Divisional police commander North Senior Superintendent of Police Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said the incident happened last Saturday.
SSP Lutunacaucau said investigations were still in progress, encouraging those with information to come forward and report to their nearest police station or community post. He also cautioned people that work sites like the one belonging to CRFG should never be tempered with by people as the projects were for their benefit.
In another incident, police and the National Fire Authority have yet to determine the cause of a fire that razed a house in Bua on Wednesday. SSP Lutunacaucau said assistance for the family had started flowing in from NGOs such as the Red Cross.
He confirmed the damage to the house stood at $180,000.
