Warning On Citizens Stoning Police Vehicles

We will come down hard on citizens involved in stoning police vehicles while patrolling the streets during curfew hours.

This was the stern warning from Divisional Police Commander West, Senior Superintendent of Police Surend Sami yesterday.

He made the warning after a police vehicle was stoned while making its round in Lautoka on Friday night.

“It was a one off incident at the Lovu Hart Settlement, it doesn’t happen every day but we are investigating this at the moment,” he said.

Mr Sami confirmed that the incident occurred at midnight and that no arrests had been made yet.

He said those who wished to continue stoning police vehicles would be taken to task.

“Only one vehicle was stoned but I want to put a message out to the public to those who want to damage the police vehicles, we will come down hard on them and leave no stone unturned,” he said.

“These resources were given by the government to look after the communities and the public should take ownership of that.”

He has also urged the public to adhere to health directives which included remaining at their homes during curfew hours.
