Known Durban North Housebreaker Fresh Out Of Jail Arrested Again

A short foot chase led to the arrest of a suspect who was stealing electrical cables from a vacant property in Durban North on Saturday afternoon.

At approximately 14h30 the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received a call from a client on Kenneth Kaunda Road in the Durban North area who stated that their gardener noticed a suspect breaking into a vacant house, which is currently under construction, where he was stealing electrical cables.

Multiple Armed Response Officers were dispatched and arrived on the scene within minutes. As they arrived on scene, the suspect was seen fleeing from the property and after a short foot chase he was arrested on Belgrave Crescent with the stolen electrical cables in his possession. 

The Durban North SAPS arrived on scene a short while later where the suspect together with the stolen items was taken to the police station for further processing and will be charged with housebreaking and theft.

The suspect is a known criminal in the Durban North area and has been arrested multiple times before, and had just recently been released from jail.
