Detectives are investigating a break in at Police headquarters in Port Moresby and the theft of guns from the firearms registry office.

Police say the thieves climbed a mango tree to get over a razor wire fence, then broke into the Community Policing Division office before getting into the registry.

Community Policing Commander, Chief Superintendent Jerry Frank, says it's a major security lapse because Police headquarters is supposed to be a high security zone.

He told, Firmin Nanol, the robbers escaped with an unknown number of guns.
