This morning our team managed to make an arrest when vigilant community members in the Morningside area reported suspicious behaviour.
At approximately 08h25 the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received reports from a WhatsApp Crime Alert group of a suspect walking on Percy Osborn Road carrying a flat screen TV box.
Our Armed Response Officers were immediately dispatched to investigate. A few minutes later, the suspect was spotted at the corners of Percy Osborn and Smiso Nkwanyana Roads, where our officers proceeded to question him.
Upon opening the box, the TV was found still inside. The suspect could not provide a reasonable explanation as to where and how he got the flat screen TV and was immediately apprehended.
The Durban Central SAPS were contacted and arrived on scene a short while later. They transported the suspect together with the TV to Durban Central SAPS where he will be charged for being in possession of suspected stolen items.
Well done to the vigilant member of the public who reported the suspicious behaviour and to our team on yet another successful arrest.
