Atlas Security’s Port Alfred Control Room notified our Armed Response team that a client had contacted us and needed assistance in Becker Street. The client had informed us that a suspect was in their yard, broke into their flatlet and also attempted to break-in to the main home.
Atlas Security Armed Response Officer, B3, using the description immediately gave chase into the CBD area where he noticed the suspect had run into a complex and jumped over a roof. Armed Response Officer B6 arrived as back up.
The suspect continued to run from our fast Armed Response Officers towards the Kowie Bowling Club, he was stopped and both Atlas Security Officers arrested him.
The home owner positively identified the suspect. Clinton Millard says “We believe that these successes have the impact of sending a strong message to criminals that crime will not be tolerated in our town”
“We urge residents to remain vigilant in reporting any suspicious activity in their neighbourhoods and to be firm about opening up cases against suspects for lower degree crimes, like vandalism and trespassing, as these crimes can eventually escalate to more serious crimes.”
This is what makes Atlas Security in the greater Port Alfred area the strongest private security company.
