On Tuesday afternoon CAP’s Command Centre received a call from a car dealership reporting two suspects that had entered the store and through deception managed to steal one of the vehicles on show.
One suspect was detained by the car dealership’s employees while the other suspect was in the process of fleeing the scene in the vehicle. Tactical Units were immediately dispatched to strategic blocking points in the area.
Moments later, the suspect was involved in a motor vehicle accident in the Sandown environment while fleeing the scene that was noticed by one of CAP’s Spotters in the area. The Spotter alerted the Command Centre and Tactical Units arrived shortly afterwards to detain the suspect who was unable to flee on foot.
The suspect was handed over to SAPS and medical services on arrival and the stolen vehicle was also recovered.
Well done to all involved!
