Yesterday morning, the CAP Control Room received a panic activation from a business located on Pretoria Street in Oaklands. CAP Tactical Officers were immediately dispatched to the scene, who arrived simultaneously with SAPS and a vehicle tracking company who were in the process of tracking a victim’s vehicle that had been stolen outside a CAP operational area. Upon arrival, the Tactical Officers spotted a suspect abandoning a vehicle and making an attempt to flee the scene.
The Tactical Officers offered assistance and a foot chase ensued that led to the suspect’s swift apprehension and subsequent handing over to SAPS. The vehicle was recovered.
Well done to all involved!
