Two men in their 40s found with cars allegedly stolen last year have been arrested by Samabula Police.
The matter came to light when the owner of a black Fielder which was reported stolen from Samabula last November, recognized the roof rack on a red Fielder parked at the CWM Hospital car park last Thursday.
He told the Police that it is a similar one that was mounted on his car.
The two suspects were arrested and upon further investigation information was gathered on the second suspect’s involvement in the alleged theft of vehicles last year.
A team of officers pursued the second suspect at Korociriciri in Nausori and arrested him who was found allegedly driving the black fielder which was stolen last year.
Further investigation has also led to the discovery of another stolen vehicle which the first suspect had in his possession.
The red Fielder seized from the CWM Hospital was allegedly stolen from Samabula last May and was stripped and repainted from Silver grey to red.
The two remain in custody as the investigation continues
