Daylight Thieves Enter Home Opposite Police Post, Owner Baffled

A Nausori man fell victim to thieves on November 25, when two people ransacked his home and made off with items valued more than $4000 in broad daylight.

Vinod Nilesh Lal’s home is situated across from the Raralevu Police Post, but the daring thieves stole a television, a radio, a DVD player, microwave, dust blower, jewellery, clothes and other items.

“No one was at home. I was at work, so was my wife and my older son. They (the thieves) hired a rental vehicle, cut the bolts and locks and entered my house,” he said.

“My neighbour was not home as well. The number plate of the vehicle was captured on a dash cam belonging to a person residing in the area.

“From there we were able to trace the rental company and get the name of the person who rented the vehicle.”

Mr Lal said following the burglary at his place, the two people involved targeted a home in Nadi.

He said the owner of the home in Nadi agreed that the two people involved were the same.

Mr Lal said the incident happened more than a week ago and he is hopeful Police would be able to make arrests soon.

He urged the public to take heed of such people who could be targeting homes by studying their subjects.

“This is not a random crime. I am sure they must have known when to target the house and they did this in daylight,” Mr Lal said. Police spokesperson Wame Bautolu said investigations were continuing.
