On Saturday two suspects were arrested after being caught tampering with the ignition of a stolen vehicle.
At approximately 12h50 the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch received an alert via a community WhatsApp crime alert group stating that two suspects could be seen tampering with the ignition of a silver VW Polo on Jain Road in the Effingham Heights area.
Multiple Armed Response Officers were immediately dispatched and arrived on scene within minutes. As our Armed Response Officers arrived, the two suspects tried to get out of the vehicle but were immediately apprehended. The Greenwood Park SAPS were contacted and arrived on the scene a short while later.
Upon further investigation, it was later established by SAPS that the vehicle had been stolen the night before in the Durban Central area and is currently unknown whether the two suspects were involved in the theft of the vehicle.
Both suspects were then transported to Greenwood Park SAPS where they will be charged for being in possession of a suspected stolen item.
