Yesterday at 18:10 patrol officer Mans called over the radio for backup. He was busy chasing a suspect that stole a bicycle at Checkers Main rd. Shift commander Nortje responded to the call and came in from Van der Stel side on the N2. Mans lost the suspect as he went over the park at Lourens rd. As Nortje came down the N2 he spotted a suspect on a bicycle fitting the description. He stopped and questioned him. After a few questions he decided to throw the bicycle down and ran .Nortje gave chase and caught him on Victoria rd. The suspect was detained and handed over the SAPS. As they searched him for any weapons, ten tablets of mandrax was found in his possession. Suspect has been arrested for theft of bicycle possession, stolen property and possession of illegal narcotics.
