A 43 year old man was produced in court yesterday for his alleged involvement in an aggravated robbery case in Namadi Heights.
A report was received at the Samabula Police Station last Tuesday whereby 2 unknown persons had allegedly entered a home occupied by a 42 year old woman and her 18 year old daughter.
The two suspects then allegedly stole cash including local and foreign currencies.
Upon receipt of the call, a team from the Samabula Police Station and K9 unit were deployed to the scene.
Investigations carried out by officers led to the arrest of 2 men aged 43 and 32 years on Monday.
The 32 year old suspect was questioned and released whereas the 43 year old was charged with 2 counts of aggravated robbery.
The accused was produced at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.
He has since been remanded and the case transferred to the High Court for bail application on the 5th of July.
Chief of Operations Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Rusiate Tudravu says police are working around the clock to arrest those involved in home invasions.
“Our divisional police commanders are taking these cases of aggravated robberies seriously and dedicated teams are investigating”.
