Two suspects were swiftly arrested following an eyewitness report of a housebreaking in progress at a vacant property in Durban North yesterday morning.
Just after 08h00 a member of the public called our Emergency Dispatch Centre who reported that there is a housebreaking in progress on Adelaide Tambo Drive, where two suspects were seen breaking into the vacant house.
Multiple Armed Response Officers were dispatched and arrived on scene within minutes.
While conducting a property check, two suspects were seen inside the house. Our Armed Response Officers found the entry point where the suspects had forced open a sliding door and security gate. Our Armed Response Officers entered and the suspects were immediately arrested.
Upon searching the suspects, various housebreaking implements as well as drug paraphernalia were found in their possession. The suspects were in the process of stripping the inside of the house for copper, copper cables and steel.
The Durban North SAPS were dispatched and arrived on scene a short while later, whereafter they proceeded to transport the suspects to the police station where they will be charged for housebreaking and theft.
