Police nab suspects

POLICE arrested three suspects over the weekend in relation to a spate of alleged shop and taxi burglaries on Taveuni over the past few weeks.

Spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said the suspects were interviewed and released.

"We interrogated the suspects and they were later released," he said.

"But this doesn't mean that our investigations will end here.

"Instead, it will continue. Police officers in Savusavu travelled to Taveuni last week to assist officers there conduct a thorough investigation.

"We are appealing to members of the public to come forward to us if they have any information regarding the matter."

Insp Sokomuri said a collaborative effort from the public and stakeholders was necessary.

"One problem that the police officers face on Taveuni is the lack of resources and with this, we are appealing to the public to assist us. In cases where our vehicle encounters breakages or breakdowns, they can step in and help us with transportation.

"We can help pay for the fuel and this is one classic examples of exercising the Duavata community policing model," Insp Sokomuri said.

It was earlier reported the business owners in Naqara, Taveuni, feared for their lives because of the alleged incidents.
