THREE ARRESTED FOR HOUSEBREAKING
TABLE VIEW – Three men were arrested by Table View Police after they had broken into a garage in Sunningdale Drive, Sunningdale, Table View during the early hours of the morning on Thursday, 25 April 2019. The officers responded to the housebreaking call when they were informed by one of their partners, a member from a local security company that he had seen a man carrying a gas tank and found it peculiar. After receiving the call for the housebreaking, he realised that his earlier observation could be linked to this housebreaking.
The security officer informed the officer of the location where he had last seen the man, and the officers went to investigate. Not far from the scene of the crime, the officers noticed a man hiding behind a wall and two other men were seen running from there. A chase ensued and the two running men, together with the one hiding behind the wall were apprehended. The stolen property found in their possession.
At the crime scene, the officers was shown a shoe print, which was linked to one of the suspects. The owner of the home also identified the stolen property from his garage as belonging to him.
All three suspects, aged in their thirties were arrested and taken to Table View Police Station for further questioning and were detained. They will remain in the holding cells until a court date is set.
