On Monday 28th August @ 14:37 an alert member of Neighbourhood Watch contacted the Control Room and reported observing a suspicious male running towards Fir Grove from the area behind Schonenberg Estate. He had been observed in the Heldervue area and it was suspected that he was in possession of stolen property.
A detailed description was broadcast and Response Officer Lukas located the suspect in Eike Avenue in Firgrove.
He was found in possession of jewellery and a cell phone and failed to provide a plausible explanation as to where he had obtained the items.
The SAPS were notified and Cst Van Deventer arrested the suspect for being in possession of Suspected Stolen Property.
Well Done to the alert neighbourhood watch members and to Response Officer Lukas.
