Collaborative efforts by CAP and community leads to successful apprehension of known suspect
Following a break-in at a homeowner’s premises on 13th Street, Orange Grove last week Tuesday, a suspect was positively identified through means of CCTV footage obtained when the suspect returned on Saturday for another break-in attempt, at which point the homeowner contacted the CAP control room for assistance.
CAP tactical officers were dispatched to canvas the area for the suspect. With assistance from Core Tactical Security and other role players, the suspect was apprehended in Fairwood. A bag of suspected stolen items and housebreaking implements were found on the suspect. The suspect was handed over to Norwood SAPS.
We would like to commend the homeowner for being alert and calling into CAP.
