Suspected tsunami alert siren thief arrested

Tonga police have arrested a man they suspect was responsible for the stealing of three civil defence sirens from Kolovai last month.

The 25-year-old accused was arrested in Lapaha on Friday night September 15, a police spokesperson told Kaniva News.

The accused was believed to have been a member of a group of workers from Lapaha who did maintenance road works in Kolovai.

Police had retrieved one of the three sirens and they were still searching for the remaining two.

The sirens were installed by the National Emergency Management Office.
