Well done to the response officers from our wonderful service provider Vetus Schola as well as the members of SAPS for removing these thugs from our streets.
Any one of our community members could have been the next victims to find themselves at the wrong end of these firearms.
Congrats and thank you to all involved.
CREATING SAFER STREETS TOGETHER.
ARREST: ARMED ROBBERY:TRESCO LIQUORS
On Saturday 24/02/2018 @16:14 our Control room received a panic activation from Tresco Liquors. H4 Ryno & H10 JJ were immediately dispatched and telephonic contact was made with the client who confirmed that the premises had just been robbed at gunpoint and that an employee had been injured in the Armed Robbery.
Vital details pertaining to the culprits were obtained and relayed via radio to our vehicles and telephonically to the SAPS.
At 16:16 H10 JJ reported that he had the vehicle in his sights and was in pursuit. H4 Ryno was also in the vicinity and reported that the vehicle was heading towards Lwandle direction. Due to peak traffic our response team lost visuals on the suspect vehicle .H5 Lucas and H14 Lester moved towards Sir Lowry’s Pass and reported that the vehicle and 4 suspects had been apprehended by the SAPS. All four suspects were armed with 9mm pistols and all of the stolen cash, liquor and employee cell phones that had been stolen during the robbery had been recovered.
The vehicle appeared to have a set of false plates secured over a different set of licence plates.
H4 Ryno returned to Tesco and ascertained that the injured employee was already en route to the hospital.
What a wonderful collaboration between the SAPS and Vetus Schola – Well Done all, we are super proud.
