Two suspected car thieves were cornered and arrested during a joint operation in the east of Pretoria.
According to Fidelity ADT district manager, Leon Muller, Fidelity and the police were in the midst of an operation in the Brooklyn and Waterkloof areas when they received a tip-off that a blue Mini Cooper had been stolen.
“The car was quickly identified and tracked to the corner of Solomon Mahlangu and Delmas drives.”
He said the suspects were cornered and arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen goods. They are being detained by the Brooklyn police.

“These joint operations are particularly successful and have regularly led to the apprehension and arrest of suspects in the area.
“We believe that by working closely with the Brooklyn police and other security providers, we can show a united force that sends a clear message to criminals – crime will not go unnoticed.”
Muller said they would continue to participate in these joint operations going forward.
