Two caught after dramatic chase

Two Bellville police officers arrested men with stolen recording equipment in a scene suited to a movie.

Sgt David Salmans and Const Jesreal Cupido were patrolling the area around Conradie Street near Parksig Villas on Sunday 19 July at around 08:00 when the incident happened, says Sgt Anele Siwisa-Dambuza, a spokesperson of the Bellville police station.

They noticed two men carrying a backpack and as the police approached, one of the suspects ran away. Sgt Salmans gave chase in a vehicle and Const Cupido stayed with the other suspect. The suspect with Const Cupido took out something that looked like a firearm and pointed it towards the police officer after which he took out his own firearm and instructed the suspect to drop his gun. The suspect ran away – right into the direction of Sgt Salmans.

A scuffle ensued and the two men were arrested. Upon searching the backpack, they found a laptop, camera, recorder, two cellphones and keys.

The men appeared in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court last Tuesday on the following charges: pointing of a firearm, possession of an imitation firearm, possession of suspected stolen property and assault of a police officer.

Siwisa-Dambuza urges anyone who suspects the recovered items were stolen from them to call the police with proof of ownership.
