This afternoon just after 15h00 whilst members of our Tactical Team and Armed Response Officers were on routine patrol in the Westmead, Pinetown area spotted a suspicious male walking on Henry Pennington Road carrying a bag of cables.
Our teams immediately reacted and stopped to interview the male. During the interview the male could not provide our Officers with a reasonable explanation as to how he had the cables were in his possession.
The suspect was immediately apprehended and Pinetown SAPS were informed as well as the Combined Private Investigations from Telkom who arrived on scene a short while later.
