Just recently in the Orange Grove environment, three suspects, two armed with firearms, driving a Silver Volvo, approached a victim in the public space and held the victim up. Various valuables were taken and the suspects left in the direction of 9th Avenue.
CAP Tactical Units proactively patrolling in the area saw the fleeing vehicle and immediately gave chase. The Special Intervention Unit were also quickly activated to assist. After a nail-biting chase the suspects were pulled over on 1st Street East and detained until SAPS arrived on scene.
The suspects were handed over to SAPS and the stolen goods, suspect motor vehicle and both firearms were recovered.
The suspects are believed to be linked to other crimes across CAP areas. CAP’s Legal Team will be liaising with SAPS to assist in the investigation.
Well done to the spectacular work done by all!
