Police named the man arrested in connection to an office burglary in Nuku’alofa on January 6.

Tēvita Fifita, 25, of Fo’ui was accused of stealing more than $10,000 pa’anga from the Office Equipment.

Police arrested Fifita from a bush allotment in Tatakamotonga on February 2.

He has been charged with housebreaking and theft and was remanded in
Police custody.

As Kaniva News reported, a CCTV video which captured the incident was released to Police and social media after the money went missing from the Fatafehi road office.

A search of the place where the suspect was arrested found clothes which match those worn by the person who appeared in the security footage, Police said.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
