Control room received a panic call from a local liquor store. Vetus Schola / HCW patrol officers Lazlow & Marshal arrived within 4 minutes. Lazlow reported seeing one male suspect standing in the aisle and another suspect talking to a male that was standing behind the till with black gloves on. All three suspects then fled the scene on foot. Vetus Schola / HCW patrol officers Edward and Agmat joined in the chase and quickly detained two of the suspects. The last suspect carried on running but when he realized that patrol officer Lazlow was ready to deploy his trusty K9, KUMBA, he quickly dropped to the ground with his hands on his head!
Suspects took cash, cigarettes and a cell phone. All stolen goods were recovered and returned to the client. One knife was recovered from one suspect and although the client thought that he had seen a firearm none of the suspects were found to have on in their possession.
Strand SAPS arrived and the scene was handed over to them.
Well done to Vetus Schola / HCW patrol officers Lazlow, Marshal, Edward, Agmat and especially K9 Kumba on the fantastic arrest and for showing how effective good teamwork can be.
