Crime suspects nabbed

A public safety officer foiled a break-in while doing his rounds.

About 02:30 on Monday 1 July, Somerset West SecureRite armed response officer Rudi Erasmus was on a crime prevention patrol in Main Road, Somerset West when a vagrant informed him of a house break-in near Somerset Square Shopping Centre.

Erasmus and a Gordon’s Bay Security armed response personnel went to investigate and spotted a suspect jumping over a wall. The officers quickly chased the suspect for a short distance and detained him.

The suspect had broken into a garage and stole some tools, a gas cylinder and a cellphone.

Somerset West police arrived at the scene and arrested the suspect.

In a separate incident, on Saturday 29 June at 09:17, a community member requested an armed response vehicle after two men were spotted walking in Dirkie Uys Street, Somerset West.

The two were pushing a shopping trolley containing an air conditioning unit, which appeared to have been stolen. Five SecureRite officers were despatched and found the suspects in St James Street with the trolley still in their possession. The police were informed and, after further investigation, the officers found the stolen item dumped in St James Street.

They were subsequently arrested.
