Melrose - Break in
This morning, the CAP Command Centre received a call from a resident who reported that she had been woken up by the sound of glass breaking and immediately thought that there was an intruder.
A Tactical Unit was dispatched to the scene and it was confirmed that there was in fact a burglary that took place whereby a tablet had been stolen. The tablet was tracked to a location in Rosebank, where SAPS and CAP Tactical Officers were dispatched for further investigation.
Upon arrival, 2 suspects were found running on Keyes Avenue and taken into custody by Norwood SAPS. The tablet was recovered.
Well done to all involved. That's 5 more criminals off our streets!
