An alarm activation was received by our control room just before 8am on Wednesday morning when suspects gained entry to the premises. Armed Response was dispatched to the scene in Schubert Street.
Upon arrival, Armed Response spotted the suspects jumping out of the yard, and the chase began. Area Commander, B14, blocked the suspect off and chased him down on foot into Sibelius Street, apprehending him only a few houses down. The suspect was handed over to the SAPS and a criminal case was opened.
This success comes after additional resources were deployed by Atlas Security into the area, as Walmer Heights residents have been victims of increased criminal activity over the past few days. The best way to reduce crime is to get boots on the ground and catch the criminals, take these chancers off the streets and make the area a safer place.
