A man believed to be the driver of the van used in the robbery at the Bank of the South Pacific (BSP)in Samabula yesterday is in police custody.

Fiji Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said a raid by police and military personnel in Nasinu this morning resulted in the arrest of a man.

Naisoro says the man is not one of the prison escapees and will be interrogated soon to give more information on the five runaway robbers.

The police are still urging people to come forward with information that can lead to the arrest of the five escaped inmates.

They are Isoa Waqa, Solomoni Qurai, Tevita Sugu, Josaia Usumaki and Epeli Qaraniqio.

Meanwhile, Crime Stoppers will reward informers who help in the capture of the inmates.
