Police Thank People Of Bukuya

The willingness of the people of Bukuya to heed the call for assistance has been greatly appreciated by the Police.

This follows the arrest of four people who had allegedly committed a robbery and shortly after stole a vehicle earlier on Thursday in the Western Division.

Two of the four were men who had escaped from the Natabua Corrections Centre on Thursday morning, while the other two who were women, believed to be accomplices in a robbery in Navutu before stealing a vehicle from Field 40 in Lautoka.

Once the report was received a combined team of officers from the Nadi and Lautoka Police stations pursued the suspects who headed towards the Nausori Highlands.

It was during the chase that officers made a call to members of Bukuya Village and requested them to erect a roadblock which the villagers did immediately. The two women were arrested a few metres from the village where they were alleged to have been dropped, while the two men were arrested at the roadblock.

As earlier indicated Police have been working hard in trying to improve the response time for serious cases such as robberies and thefts of motor vehicles. Quick response by the team of officers resulted in the vehicle being located, upon which the chase ensued.

The Police would like to extend its appreciation to the people of Bukuya for their assistance in apprehending the four suspects. Community partnerships such as this is a way we can all work together in ensuring criminal elements will not get the opportunity to commit crimes.

Police are of the belief that the people are the Police and the Police are the people, and when we work together, it presents an opportunity to fight crime given there is support from members of the community.
