Laptops stolen from secondary school

A theft incident has been reported in one of the two secondary schools in Manus over the weekend.

On Saturday October 5th, seven suspects armed with bush knives broke into the Manus Secondary School computer laboratory in the early house of the morning.

Six laptops valued at K12,000 were stolen during the incident.

Manus Provincial Police Commander, Chief Inspector David Yapu, said school properties and materials must be respected as they are important for students’ learning.

Investigations are still underway.

In another incident, an investigation team with assistance from mobile squad 10 had been formed to look into the homicide case from Naringel village on 7 Oct, where the body of an identified man was found after a wedding and bride price ceremony.

PPC Yapu said his officers are working on some leads into the incident and expected to see some arrests soon.

He is in the meantime appealing to relatives of the deceased to remain calm and allow Police to investigate and deal with the perpetrators and not take law into their own hands.
