Manus Police: ‘Bring sons in’

Police in Manus have reported two separate break and enter incidents since the New Year and are appealing to parents of youths who they believe were allegedly involved to hand them in.

The appeal was made today by  Acting provincial police commander Senior Inspector David Yapu, after the suspects, known to police, broke into a house at the upper area of ward 5, Lorengau,  and walked away with K7,497 cash monies.

PPC Yapu said about five suspects armed with a home- made gun and bush knives reportedly broke into the house on Wednesday January 4.

This allegedly took place while the occupants of the house were out.

“Suspects are known to police and police will be arresting them soon.”

Meanwhile, a house rented by the manager of Loda Security at the Lombrum Naval base was broken into on New Years day where clothing items were stolen.

PPC Yapu said one suspect has been arrested and is in police custody.

Investigations continue on the incidents and more arrested are expected soon.
