Last week a burglary took place in Pretoria Street Oaklands. Following the incident, CAP debriefed the victims as well as obtained footage. The suspect was identified via the CCTV footage that was obtained and immediately shared with Tactical Units on the ground.
In the early hours of this morning, whilst proactively patrolling, tactical officers identified the suspect involved in last week’s incident and immediately apprehended him. SAPS were called to scene for assistance but were unable to arrest the suspect as there was no evidence linking the suspect to the case.
