Lae residents aid police with arrests

It seems the public in Lae City, Morobe Province, are fed up with petty criminals, now working closely with police to apprehend them.

Yesterday, the public at Lae’s main market assisted police in arresting four suspects caught stealing a laptop from a vehicle.

According to police, the four managed to open the vehicle while the owner was in the market.

Thanks to the public, they were arrested and charged.

Police later posted pictures of the suspects on their social media page.

They say they will continue to post faces of frequent street peddlers on their Facebook page so the public can keep an eye out for them.
