Police hunt for thieves

Felix Chaudhary
Saturday, August 09, 2014

POLICE are combing the Western Division looking for four people involved in two robberies in Nadi earlier this week.

And they are appealing for any information that will lead to the arrest of the persons who violently attacked and robbed the owner of a shopping centre in Malolo and a home in Navo on Tuesday evening.

Responding to queries about a similar robbery at Waqadra this week, police West media liaison officer Naina Ragigia confirmed there was an increase in the number of home invasions.

However, Ms Ragigia said details of the incidents could not be made available to the public because of ongoing investigation on the cases.

"We can confirm that there has been a series of home invasions in the Namaka to Nadi corridor but most of them occurred when people were not at home," she said.

"Earlier this week, four masked men were involved in the aggravated robberies in Malolo and Navo.

"We can also confirm the break-ins at Waqadra and we believe an escapee to be involved in all these crimes."
