CAP’s LPR camera struck again on Monday afternoon when it alerted the Command Centre to a silver Chevrolet passing into a CAP area that was wanted for a major crime that occurred last year.
Tactical Units were immediately dispatched and were able to locate the vehicle. SAPS were contacted while the vehicle attempted to evade the Tactical Vehicles during a chase. The vehicle was eventually pulled over in the Cheltondale environment however the suspect abandoned the vehicle and managed to flee the scene.
Tactical Units will continue to be on the lookout for the suspect while the vehicle was recovered by SAPS for further investigation.
Well done to all involved!
