Vuetaki – Wanted By Police
Have you seen him ... Tupou Vuetaki.

Police is offering a reward leading to information that could help in arresting a suspect in the robbery at the Aerotown Mobil Service Station in Nadi on Monday.

Police have identified one of the alleged accomplices in the robbery.

Police chief of Intelligence and Investigations, Henry Brown said they had identified the suspect as Tupou Vuetaki.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Brown calls on members of the public to help locate Vuetaki’s whereabouts.

“We are requesting for information that could assist in locating a person who is wanted for arrest for his alleged involvement in the Aerotown Mobil Service Station robbery on Monday morning,” ACP Brown said.

“Tupou Vuetaki is not only wanted for arrest for his alleged involvement in the Nadi robbery, but is also wanted for his alleged involvement in a series of aggravated robberies within the Nadi-Lautoka corridor.”

The robbery, involving four masked men armed with pinch bars and knives, was foiled by police who also pelted the robbers with stones and bottles when they escaped.

Three got away while the fourth lost his footing and was left behind by his colleagues when they drove off at high speed in their getaway car.

The car, which was stolen, was found abandoned in the sugarcane fields.

Security camera video footage captured the men entering the station and they were not aware that police had been tracking them.

The man left behind is admitted at the Nadi Hospital. It is believed that he received injuries after a stone was thrown by a police officer hit his head.

ACP Henry brown said that a reward would be offered to whoever comes forward with information in relation to Mr Vuetaki’s whereabouts.

“A reward is being offered for information that will lead to his arrest and all callers will be treated with strict confidentiality,” he said.

“Anyone with information is requested to call, 9906 881, 917 or 919 or their nearest Police station.”
