Successful Arrests in Despatch & Walmer!
Last night an Atlas Security Armed Response Officer in Despatch, while on patrol, saw a suspect attempt to break-in to a business. The suspect fled when he saw the Officer. After a quick chase the suspect was apprehended and handed over to SAPS.
This morning in the 7th Avenue Walmer area, Atlas Security responded to a report of a person in a clients yard. Upon searching the premises nobody was found. The Armed Response Officer did a patrol of the vicinity thereafter and came across nearby residents struggling with a suspect they had found in their garden. The suspect had grabbed items through an open window. The Armed Response Officer assisted with apprehending the suspect, who has been handed over to SAPS.
Remain vigilant, keep unnecessary windows closed and ALWAYS arm your alarm. We’re coming in strong for June!
