Today, Tactical Officers were proactively patrolling in Kei Street corner Orange Road, Emmarentia. They observed six suspects digging a trench on the pavement.
The Tactical Officers stopped and engaged with the suspects about their actions. At this point, the suspects ran away. Two of the six suspects were apprehended by the Tactical Officers.
The suspects could not provide a sufficient reason for digging the trench and none of the information given to the Tactical Officers could be verified.
Linden SAPS was called to the scene as it was established that an incident of cable theft was in progress. The two suspects that were apprehended were handed over to Linden SAPS.
Well done to all involved.
