On Wednesday afternoon, our Linkside Dedicated Patrol Vehicle was flagged down by a post office worker who informed them of suspicious activity on the golf course. He provided a detailed description of the suspects.
Our Dedicated Patrol Vehicle requested backup from another unit, and they proceeded to investigate. Upon arrival, our officers spotted three males, but as they approached, the suspects fled.
Our officers managed to apprehend two suspects, while one managed to escape. In their possession, our officers found bags filled with copper wires, copper pipes, solar lights, and tools.
Earlier in the day, our Dedicated Patrol Vehicle for Mill Park had removed one of the suspects from the area, as it had been reported to our control room. However, it appears that they were intent on causing trouble and evidently returned to the area.
The South African Police Service (SAPS) was contacted, and an arrest was made.
