This past weekend, CAP Tactical Officers affected the apprehension of five suspects across three of our operational areas.

A Tactical Unit was promptly dispatched to the property, who upon arrival found that the suspects had entered the property by jumping over the fence and had stolen metal pipes, before fleeing the scene.

A few streets away, the Tactical Officers spotted the suspects and pursued them, apprehending them quickly. Both suspects were handed over to Sandton SAPS and the stolen goods recovered.

SAPS Norwood were immediately called and the suspect handed over. The stolen goods were recovered.
