THIEVES broke into the Discount Minimart shop in Naseakula, Labasa on Thursday night last week.

Police spokesperson Jokatama Qio said thieves stole money and liquor from the shop.

Mr Qio said the shop was closed for business when the incident happened.

"Police are continuing investigations into the incident to implicate the suspects," he said.

"A video camera in the shop captured the whole incident and police are working with the owners of the shop.

"We are seeking information from members of the public who may know the culprits' identities to help police in the successful investigation of the case.

"The matter was reported to the Labasa Police Station on Friday last week."

Mr Qio has reiterated police advice in the past years calling on members of the public to secure their properties well to avoid providing opportunists with the perfect environment to commit crimes.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Police Force Crime Trend Report of 2016 listed aggravated robbery and burglary as one of the nine serious offences committed in Fiji.

The report also noted an increase in numbers of theft-related cases reported between 2014 and 2016.
