Whilst on patrol in Houghton, CAP tactical officers identified an Armed Robbery Public in progress. A vehicle chase ensued between CAP officers and the suspects. The suspects subsequently lost control of their vehicle and had an accident in Norwood. They then fled on foot. CAP officers on scene apprehended two suspects.
The two suspects were later arrested.
The suspect vehicle, a firearm and stolen items were recovered.
We'd like to commend CAP's officers for their pro-active actions. The suspects appeared in court this morning and remain in custody. CAP's legal team will monitor the case to ensure these criminals feel the full force of the law.
Well done to all involved.
That's 2 more criminals off our streets.
