The National, Friday, 27th May 2011

The WAP & Co Security Services yesterday appealed to residents of Garden Hill Settlement in Port Moresby to surrender suspects to police following a break and enter incident last Friday in which more than K240,000 worth of PNGNRL Bid uniforms were stolen.
The managing director, Wasa Amu made this call after members of NCD foot beat patrol unit arrested a suspect at the Garden Hills roadside market yesterday.
An upset Amu said the settlers must work together to restore goodwill and surrender suspects to relevant authorities and not  allow such criminal behaviour to destroy their settlement
Amu, who personally attended the incident spot, provided the necessary support for police which led to the arrest of the suspect.
Amu’s security firm was contracted by the National Capital District Commission to provide security at the NCD Depot at Four-Mile which housed the PNGNRL Bid containers containing the NRL T-shirts and other  accessories.
A member of NCD foot beat patrol unit who requested anonymity told The National soon after the arrest that this was the second time PNGNRL Bid containers had fallen victim to the hands of  criminals.
The first occurred earlier this year where K50,000 worth of Bid gear was allegedly stolen.
Bid marketing officer Michelle Monsour did not return calls made by this newspaper enquiring about the latest incident.
