This morning one of our vigilant Armed Response Officers arrested a suspect who had stolen copper pipes and outside lights from a business premises last week, when he spotted him walking on North Coast Road.
On the 29th of December the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received a call from a client who notified us that their business premises on North Coast Road in the Park Hill area had been broken into and that the suspect had stolen copper pipes and outside lights. The theft was caught on CCTV and the client shared the footage and an accurate description of the suspect with our team members, and the client proceeded with opening a case.
Then this morning at approximately 05h00 while on routine patrol on North Coast Road, our Armed Response Officer spotted the same suspect matching description provided. Our officer immediately stopped and apprehended the suspect.
The suspects was handed over to the Greenwood Park SAPS for further investigation and processing.
Well done to our vigilant team member for a successful arrest.
