Earlier this morning a suspect was involved in a snatch ‘n grab incident in the Norwood environment and fled the scene in an accomplice’s silver Toyota Etios. Witnesses to the incident contacted CAP’s Command Centre and provided details of the incident including the suspect motor vehicle’s licence plate number. This information was quickly added to CAP’s LPR database.
Moments ago, the Toyota was flagged by a strategically placed LPR camera in the Craighall environment and Tactical Vehicles were immediately dispatched. The Toyota was eventually pulled over on Bolton Road in the Parkwood environment and three suspects inside the vehicle were apprehended. SAPS were contacted to the scene and the suspects were handed over to them on arrival.
Well done to all involved and a special congratulations to our Norwood community members who proactively called the incident into the Command Centre this morning!
