Yesterday afternoon, whilst patrolling in Cheltondale, CAP Tactical Officers discovered two individuals acting suspiciously in the public space and approached them and engaged in conversation to understand what they were doing in the area. As our officers approached the individuals, the suspects immediately attempted to flee through a nearby park, but the quick-thinking Tactical Officers pre-empted the suspects’ movements and made their way to the opposite side of the park to wait for them to emerge. When they did, the Tactical Officers immediately affected the apprehension.
The suspects were found to be in possession of tools typically used for motor vehicle break-ins and were subsequently handed over to Norwood SAPS.
That's two more suspects of our streets!
