On Wednesday afternoon, Officer B1 received information from local residents in the Mount Pleasant area regarding two suspects who had allegedly stolen copper pipes and taps from two properties in the vicinity.
Without hesitation, Officer B1 quickly relayed the description of the suspects to his team via radio, informing them that the suspects were believed to be heading towards Builders Warehouse.
Acting on this information, our team immediately mobilized and began searching for the suspects. After a short pursuit, we located and apprehended the suspects at Builders Warehouse, successfully detaining them.
We contacted the affected property owners in Mount Pleasant, as well as the SAPS to inform them of the situation.
Following our swift and efficient response, the suspects were subsequently arrested. A case was opened.
