Men attempted to steal district vehicles: MP

The MP said seven men were arrested by Madang Police on Friday (January 26) when they stormed into the district head office and “illegally” took two of its Toyota LandCruiser.

The vehicles were earlier confiscated by the district authority and impounded at the office.

Uguro said the suspects were chased by Police and later apprehended.

Police also took the vehicles.    

Last year, the Usino-Bundi District Development Authority (UBDDA) made a decision to recoup all district assets, including vehicles and machineries.

Search still on for missing constable

The constable was with two other officers, including the late sergeant Willie Marita, in the FOX 01 (zero-one) LandCruiser when they were caught in the overflowing flood waters at the Tapo Fjord crossing around 7 that evening.

The missing constable and another officer had both accompanied their senior ranked officer to Negeri in Tapo to attend to a reported hold up.

The Fox 01 vehicle was caught in the overflowing river caused by the heavy downpour on Monday night.

The vehicles were presented by Provincial Administrator Daniel Aloi, in response to the recent petition issued by landowners and residents of Sisiak over escalated crime.

Aloi also promised a police post for Sisiak, and road sealing after the general elections, while Water PNG committed free water and accommodation for police officers to live and monitor the area of crime.

Police issues warning to settlers

PPC Jacob Singura says there has been a great increase in the number of deaths and the rate of attempted killings has also risen over the past couple of weeks.

He says he has come up with a new strategy which he believes will help minimise these numbers and that is to go down hard on families, especially those who are not from Madang but have settled themselves in the province and are harbouring suspects.

They will send the families who are hiding criminals back to their place of origin.

Police promise to be seen in town and villages

PPC Singura says his priority for 2016 is to maintain police visibility in the town area and also in the outer stations.

Madang police start pre Christmas operations

Provincial Police Commander Jacob Singura says in the lead up to Christmas and New Year police in Madang will be carrying out awareness within communities.

This is his first week in office and he says to LOOP News that their aim is to get people to understand that law and order issues can only be minimized if people partner with police.

Singura says he hopes that awareness will discourage people from being involved in criminal activities during the Christmas and New Year period.
