Police unearth looted items after being informed

Commissioner Mangu said police had received information from the community that two suspected suspects had buried a large number of stolen property around their residence.

A joint operation between the Royal Solomon Island Police Force (RSIPF) and the Australian Federal Police (AFP) executed a search warrant and confiscated suspected looted items buried behind the village of Panatina yesterday (December 5, 2021).

The joint operation was launched to target offenders suspected of being involved in the looting and theft of machines and tools from hardware stores in the industrial and commercial district of Ranadi.

Commissioner Mostyn Mangau said: “The joint operation arrested five suspects in connection with the search warrant and they are in custody. The arrested suspects include three adults and two minors. Among the five suspects, there is a woman in her thirties.

Commissioner Mangu said police had received information from the community that two suspected suspects had buried a large number of stolen property around their residence.

“Some of the items stolen were generators, chainsaws, power tools and consumer goods,” he said.

“I call on anyone who may have been involved in the looting to hand over the stolen items to the police. You will not be able to hide. We have received information on those who were involved in the looting and it is only a matter of time before we are at your doorstep.

If you know anyone involved in the protest, riot, arson and looting of shops in your area, call the police on 23666 or call the police toll-free line on 999.
