A van which was involved in a break-in of a liquor store in Urapola, Wathupitiwala was fired upon by police on the morning of Monday March 21.

After being tipped-off via the 119 Police Emergency Hotline, officers attached to the Nittambuwa Police arrived at the scene and pursued the van. The pursuit came to an end at the Urapola Junction after the van’s driver ignored police orders to pull over and was fired at, which resulted in the van losing control, and crashing.

Though the suspects in the van fled the scene, police have managed to ascertain that the van is registered to an individual in the Kahatuduwa area and had been provided on rent.

Investigations are underway in search of the suspects.
