Suspected copper thief caught

An alleged copper thief was nabbed in Strand recently.

A Fidelity ADT armed response officer was doing a routine patrol on Thursday 20 September, when he spotted suspicious activity in Fagan Street.

His suspicions were confirmed when he noticed an individual growing anxious as he approached him.

“The suspect’s demeanour caused the officer to stop and talk to him,” said Verena Hulme, Fidelity ADT’s district manager (Cape Town North).

“The suspect was found to be in possession of copper pipes, which had reportedly been stolen in the area.

The officer apprehended the individual and alerted the police, who then took him to the local police station.

“Well done to our officer for his keen observation skills and timely response,” Hulme expressed.

Furthermore she advised:

“Residents are encouraged to ensure their homes are locked and secured by activating their homes’ alarms system – even if they’re only stepping out for 5 minutes.”

She advises people to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
