It was another busy weekend for Atlas Security, as our team responded to a total of 22 incidents during the weekend, with the majority of them being break-ins. Several arrests were made by Atlas Security’s Armed Response Officers.

Atlas Security Armed Response Officers were quick with response leading to several arrests during the weekend for crimes ranging from shoplifting, house break-in and theft.

Our Uitenhage team stayed strong this weekend, arresting one suspect and recovering all stolen goods after the suspect had broken into the home. The information was given to our control room from a WhatsApp group. The suspect had forced the front door open and stole items, minutes later our team arrived and apprehended the suspect.

In Summerstrand, one suspect was arrested for house break-in. An Atlas Security client arrived home and saw movement inside his home. He immediately contacted our control room who dispatched multiple armed response vehicles to the property. Upon inspection the front door was seen to have been forced open. Atlas Security Armed Response entered the property and found a suspect hiding in the back room. A cellphone, money and a knife was found in the suspects possession. It was later ascertained that the suspect was previously arrested for murder.

Atlas Security Armed Response Officer, B22 received information of theft on a property in Central. The vigilant officer approached the property where he discovered two suspects inside, he arrested the one suspect with all the stolen goods, while the other suspect managed to flee, Atlas Security Armed Response Officer, B15 gave chase and found the suspect in Parliament Street, he was arrested and both suspects were handed over to the SAPS.

Atlas Security would like to advise residents to alert their security company and the police in cases where intruders are suspected to be on the property. A suspect could be carrying a concealed weapon and there could be more than one armed and dangerous intruder hiding outside. If you spot a suspect in your garden, press your panic alarm and call the police. Always make sure that your garden beams are activated when you are home in the evenings so that you will be alerted if an intruder gains entry onto the property.
