Earlier this week CAP Tactical Units were proactively patrolling the Lyndhurst area when they noticed someone acting suspiciously outside a property on Lyndhurst Road. Tactical Units investigated the perimeter and discovered that the individual had attempted to gain access through an open window to take a cellphone that was within reach.
SAPS were immediately contacted however the suspect was let go as the victim did not want to open a case. Tactical Units will remain vigilant for this individual in all CAP areas.
Always open up a case with SAPS no matter how small the crime. Suspects may be linked to other crimes in other areas and your proactive action might lead to an arrest.
Regularly assess your properties security and be aware of open windows that can be seen from street level.
