Alert Community Member Leads To Arrest Of Wanted Suspects

On Saturday afternoon, two wanted suspects were arrested for theft in the Sunningdale area, thanks to a vigilant CPF member and the effective use of CCTV footage.

At approximately 16h15, the Marshall Security’s Emergency Dispatch Centre received a call from an alert Community Policing Forum (CPF) member who spotted two wanted suspects walking on Fig Tree Rise Street in the Sunningdale area.

The CPF member had been on high alert after hearing about a theft case that had occurred earlier in April, where two steel drain covers were stolen from a client’s driveway on Sugarfarm Trail by the same two suspects. The theft incident was caught on CCTV and a case was registered with Durban North SAPS.

Our Special Operations Team immediately responded to assist. The two suspects, a male and female, were apprehended and the Durban North SAPS arrived on the scene shortly after to transport them to the station for further investigation and processing.

This incident highlights the importance of community involvement and CCTV cameras in combating crime. The alert CPF member played a crucial role in spotting the suspects, while the CCTV footage provided valuable evidence for their apprehension.

We encourage all community members of to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to law enforcement agencies, as it can make a significant impact in keeping our communities safe.
