Man Arrested At Nausori Border After He Was Found Hiding In Vehicle Delivering Essential Items

A man is in custody after he was found hiding in a vehicle that was delivering essential items at the Nausori border checkpoint.

Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said Police officers manning the Suva lockdown restrictions are on high alert as they are well aware that there are some who will try to take advantage of the current weather situation.

“A report received from the Nausori checkpoint saw a man taken into custody after he was found hiding in a vehicle that was supposed to cross the border to deliver essential items.

“He was taken into custody as investigations continue.”

He said there was supposed to be a change over at the Nausori border when they saw the suspect hiding in the back.

The man is currently in custody.

“Let this be a warning to everyone that we are not going to take these breaches lightly.

“STOP being selfish and understand the magnitude of the situation that we are in as a nation in light of COVID-19 and Severe Tropical Cyclone Harold and stop making things more difficult for officers and stakeholders,” Brigadier-General Qiliho.
