The Pro Secure response teams have had a busy weekend, rounding up criminals from around the city.
On Friday night, in a joint operation with the Lower Morningside CPF and the SAPS, 3 suspects were nabbed for being in possession of illegal substances.
The team continued with their crime fighting efforts on Saturday, resulting in a suspect being arrested for having stolen copper pipes, illegal substances and a knife in his possession. The Pro Secure SRU handed over the suspect to Chatsworth SAPS for further processing.
Whilst the Specialized Unit was busy in Chatsworth, the Morningside response officer successfully arrested 2 males who were trying to steal a gate motor. Talk about being stopped in your tracks. The suspects were handed over to Durban Central Station for processing.
This morning, the team was out and about, continuing with their efforts to clean up the streets. Whilst on patrol the Chatsworth SRU received information about a hijacked vehicle that was enroute to Umlazi. The team immediately responded, and successfully recovered the vehicle, with the assistance of other role players.
To round up the weekend, the Morningside SRU noticed a male carrying a Weber braai stand and walking along Clarence road. He started behaving suspiciously when he noticed the officers. When he was questioned, he admitted to stealing the braai stand from a home nearby.
“The senior management team at Pro Secure is extremely proud of the efforts and diligence displayed by our Operational Teams. Their dedication to cleaning up the streets is certainly commendable”, said Vaughan Pillay, MD at Pro Secure.
