A burglary signal was received by the Atlas Security Control Room. The signal had indicated that there had been an unauthorised entry into a client’s property in Walmer. The alarm had been activated at about 11:00 in the morning.

The Atlas Security Control Room immediately dispatched a patrol vehicle to inspect the incident. Atlas Security Armed Response officer B120 entered the premises and found suspects removing the copper pipes from the property.

B120 immediately called for backup. Armed Response officer B115 arrived at the scene and entered the yard. When sighted, the suspect began to flee the scene and hid in the outside toilet on the other side of the property.

After a brief struggle, B115 and B120 had the suspect apprehended and in handcuffs. The SAPS arrived on the scene and removed the suspect. A criminal case was opened, and the leaky water mains were turned off.
