Suspicious movements of an individual in Hely Road triggered a vigilant resident to contact the Atlas Security Control Room and request that Armed Response assesses the situation.

Armed Response Officers, B30 and B93, and the Sunridge NHW arrived on scene and found the male and, upon further investigation, found various items and personal documents on him, which didn’t belong to him. He claims that he found the items in a purse in a black bag. Items included a wallet with cash, ID document and till slips.

The owner of the items was traced, and a local gym confirmed that the lady worked for them and she would collect her belongings from the police station. SAPS stood down and took the suspect in for further questioning.
