Well done to Strand Neighbourhood Watch for being vigilant! Thank you Strand CID and Strand SAPS for backing them up so successfully.
In the early hours of this morning, a very observant Strand Neighbourhood Watch patroller spotted two suspects breaking into three cars in Westley Street, Strand.
When they realised they had been spotted, they fled the scene. Thankfully, the patroler had already radio’ed in for assistance. Officer Fielies was doing Strand CID crime prevention patrols in Market Street when the call came through and low and behold, along came the suspects on a stroll.
He stopped and detained them both and officers from other security companies arrived to assist him. Strand SAPS collected them and they were taken away. Great team work by all involved!
