At approximately 07h30 this morning, members of our Umdloti UIP reported an attempted theft of a white Toyota Etios and that three suspects in a maroon Toyota Etios sedan managed to flee the scene. Our Armed Response Officers and Special Operations Team responded to the scene and details of the vehicle was circulated to all our officers.
The vehicle was spotted in the Umhlanga area about 45 minutes later. The vehicle was leaving the Umhlanga area when our Armed Reaction Officer started following it and called in for back up from our Special Operations Team. As they got onto Umhlanga Rocks Drive, the suspects realised that they were being followed and they sped up in an attempt to flee. A high speed chase followed and the suspects lost control of their vehicle opposite the BP petrol station on Umhlanga Rocks Drive and rolled until coming to a stop.
The suspects proceeded to flee on foot and members of our Special Operations Team gave chase and apprehended the two suspects in a property not far from the scene.
The suspect’s vehicle had false registration plates as well as vehicle breaking implements were found in the vehicle.
Well done to all involved on a successful arrest.
