Police have managed to arrest a 50-year-old man who allegedly deceived the wife of the owner of a supermarket in Lajonia, Labasa, to get an extra $50.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro yesterday confirmed that the suspect was arrested yesterday and currently in Police custody.

“The alleged incident happened last Saturday evening when the man went to buy some items at the supermarket,” Ms Naisoro said.

“Our investigations continue.”

Bobby Lal, the owner of the Ratu Tai and Lalji Investments Supermarket said he was able to identity the suspect and what he did with the CCTV camera footage.

“The man came around 5.38pm to buy mustard oil and milk,” Mr Lal said.

“He gave $100 to my wife who was at the cashier counter and then she gave him $91.37 change. He then told the boy working in my supermarket to get a carton just trying to divert attention.

“He hid $50 in his pocket and showed my wife $5 saying that she gave wrong change.

“My wife justified nicely but he demanded in a high tone voice for $50. My wife grew afraid and in fear gave him $50.”
