Earlier this morning at around 07h30 our Emergency Dispatch Centre was alerted to a suspect jumping through a client’s property and into a neighbouring vacant property in the Athlone area.
Our Armed Response Officers were immediately dispatched and within minutes apprehended the housebreaking suspect in the vacant property. Various stolen items were recovered in the suspects possession who could not account for the stolen property. It is unknown as to where the stolen items were stolen from.
The suspect will be handed over to the SAPS for further investigation and processing.
