Coin Save fire suspect flees from Police

Police are hunting for one more suspect in relation to the fire at the Coin Save building, Fugalei, last Saturday.

Police Spokesperson, Su’a Muliaga Tiumalu, confirmed this yesterday.

 “One of the suspects is in custody now and he is charged with theft,” said Su’a.

“However, more charges are still being finalised.

“The other suspect ran away when police approached him so as of now we are still looking for him.

“We have already asked the village for help as well as his parents and family to contact us if he comes home.”

In the meantime, Su’a highlighted the importance of installing C.C.T.V cameras. He said this is something all business owners should invest in.

 “We know it’s expensive but it’s very important because with this incident the C.C.T.V. cameras were able to help us with our investigation, and especially as we were able to identify the suspects even though their faces were disguised.

“So the ministry encourages all businesses about the importance of installing cameras to safeguard their business.”
