Police have made an arrest in a rob­bery case in which two suspects made off with $70,000 last Saturday.

The robbery at Western Union’s branch in Centrepoint, outside Suva, was done in broad daylight.

Acting Chief of Intelligence and Investiga­tions, Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Vakacegu Toduadua confirmed the arrest.

Police said the two suspects entered a DVD shop which is housed in the same premises as the Western Union outlet, and hit the se­curity guard with a pinch bar.

The same tool is alleged to have been used to break into the office. Out of the $70,000, it was alleged that $30,000 was in Fijian cur­rency.
