This afternoon, just before 16h00, the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received a call from a member of the public. The caller needed assistance after recognising a suspect that is wanted for a recent fraud case. The suspect had reportedly used the member of the public’s credit card over the weekend to buy items fraudulently from a well-known supermarket in the Durban North area after his wallet was stolen.
Members of our Special Operations Team were immediately dispatched to scene. Guided by the detailed description provided by the caller, they successfully identified and apprehended the suspect without delay.
Durban North SAPS arrived on scene a short while later and transported the suspect to Durban North SAPS and will be facing charges of fraud.
