Whilst on active patrol in the early hours of the morning on Friday 2 October, CAP Tactical Officers caught sight of four suspects committing cable theft in Norwood. Tactical Officers interrupted the suspects who fled the scene in their vehicle. A chase ensued through Highlands North onto Louis Botha Avenue. A second CAP Tactical Vehicle strategically blocked the suspects, causing them to abandon their vehicle and flee on foot. Two of the suspects,one of which was armed with a firearm, managed to get away.
The remaining two suspects were subsequently arrested.
The suspect motor vehicle and the stolen cables were recovered.
Well done to CAP for catching these criminals red-handed. Thank you to SAPS for arresting these suspects.
That's 2 more criminals off our streets!
