Last night, a resident of Walmer Street noticed a suspicious individual carrying a tool box outside the premises across the road. The individual told the resident that he was there to repair something, however, she did not recognize him and began to feel uneasy. She immediately called CAP's Command Centre to request assistance.
Tactical Units were dispatched, and upon arrival, they identified that the individual was attempting to discard stolen items taken from the house and to flee. Tactical officers apprehended the suspect and he was later arrested by Sandringham SAPS. All stolen items were recovered.
Well done to the quick thinking of the resident, as well as to the victim who proceeded to lay charges against the suspect, in order to ensure that he sees the full force of the law.
That's another criminal off our streets!
