On Monday at about 1pm we received a call from a business in the Gants Centre area who reported two suspects burning copper on the field next to Gerber Boulevard. The fire had gotten out of control and the suspects fled the scene. Vetus Schola/HCW Officer Agmat and “Little Lotta”, the Vetus Schola Fire Truck, were dispatched. Agmat gave chase and apprehended the 2 suspects.
Strand Fire Department, HCW/Vetus Schola teams & Strand Neighbourhood watch were in attendance and along with Little Lotta & some business people successfully managed to extinguish the fire.
Well done to all involved. Great team work is what this success was all about.
