Early this morning, CAP’s Command Centre received an alarm activation from a property in Escombe Avenue and immediately dispatched tactical units.
Upon arrival, a property search was conducted, where tactical officers identified that the cable to the generator as well as the fencing had been cut. At this point, additional CAP resources arrived and a search of the immediate area was initiated with a specific focus on the vacant neighbouring property.
Whilst searching, CAP Tactical Officers located three suspects lying deep in the bushes. Tactical officers apprehended two suspects, while the third suspect fled. A chase ensued between the fleeing suspect and CAP officers, unfortunately resulting in the third suspect evading capture.
The two apprehended suspects were handed over to Parkview SAPS and later arrested.
Stolen items, including bicycles and a generator, were recovered.
Well done to all involved!
