This morning our team members managed to recover several stolen items from two separate housebreaking incidents, one in Glen Hills and one in Durban North.
This morning at approximately 04h20 the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre was alerted via a WhatsApp Crime alert group that a suspect was walking on Allamanda Road in the Glen Hills area pushing a children’s bicycle.
Multiple Armed Response Officers and Special Operations team members were dispatched and arrived on the scene within minutes and immediately arrested the suspect.
Upon searching the suspect various housebreaking implements were found in his possession and he could not give a reasonable explanation as to how he came to have it in his possession.
The suspect was handed over to Greenwood Park SAPS and will be charged for being in possession of suspected stolen items and housebreaking implements.
This morning at approximately 03h20 the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received a panic activation from a client on Lonsdale Drive in the Durban North area where it was reported that a housebreaking had just occurred.
Multiple Armed Response Officers and Special Operations Team members were dispatched and arrived on the scene a short while later.
Reports from the scene indicated that the homeowners had heard a noise in their house and upon investigating they noticed a suspect in their house. A scuffle between the suspect and homeowners ensued. The suspect managed to escape and fled the scene before the arrival of our team members. A speaker that was taken during the housebreaking was recovered on the outside of the house. A search was conducted for the wanted suspect and whilst searching our members managed to recover a flat screen tv found hidden in a bush on Lonsdale Drive which was taken in the housebreaking.
The flat screen tv was returned to the homeowners and The Greenwood Park SAPS were advised accordingly.
Later on that same morning at approximately 05H30 our client called back to inform us that they noticed an iMac and an iPhone were also taken during the housebreaking. Upon further investigation, the iPhone was recovered on Mansel Road near a bin. The phone was also returned to the homeowner.
Well done to our members for their vigilance and swift response that led to an arrest.
