On Sunday afternoon three suspects arrived in a Maroon Toyota Etios and parked outside a shopping centre on Long Avenue, Glenhazel.
One suspect debussed the vehicle and approached a victim in the public space. The suspect proceeded to snatch an item of value and then returned to the suspect vehicle which further left towards the direction of Northfield Avenue.
CAP went to scene and placed a lookout for the suspects with all CAP resources. The vehicle was later seen on 11th Avenue and Louis Botha Avenue by a CAP Area Commander.
The car was monitored into the Sandringham area where a strategically placed CAP Spotter also monitored the vehicle.
SAPS were contacted and further CAP resources were dispatched. The car was followed to Linksfield Road and Civin Drive where the vehicle was stopped and all three suspects were apprehended. The stolen item was also recovered in the vehicle.
Well done to all involved!
