An escaped prisoner broke into Farmer Joe’s Supermarket at Vaitele last week and stole more than $50,000.
The theft was confirmed by Police Spokesperson, Su’a Muliaga Tiumalu, yesterday.
“Police have already found the person who broke into Farmer Joe’s Supermarket,” he said.
“He was a prisoner at Olomanu.”
According to Su’a, the prisoner was out on weekend parole to spend Sunday with his family. He was scheduled to return to Olomanu on Monday.
On one of the nights when the Police looked for him, he broke into the store.
