Blue Security armed response officers arrested three suspects in separate incidents at the weekend.

Blue Security community and media liaison officer Andreas Mathios said that in the latest incident in Mobeni, a suspect was arrested after he broke into a business premises in Leicester Road at around 9.50pm on 6 January 2019. “An armed response officer responded to a panic alarm activation at the premises and made contact with the security guard on site. He inspected the property and spotted a suspect who was in the process of removing metal sheeting from the premises. The suspect is believed to have gained entry into the building by jumping over a wall,” Mathios said.

“The officer arrested the suspect and handed him over to Montclair SAPS members at the scene of the crime,” Mathios said.

A security guard arrested a burglar following an incident at a business premises in Maydon Wharf on Saturday night at around 11.45pm. Mathios said an onsite security guard had spotted two suspects stealing rice from the business premises in Johnstone Road. “The suspects dropped the 20kg rice sack they were busy filling with rice and fled the scene. One of the suspects later returned to the premises where the security officer arrested him and handed him over to Maydon Wharf,” Mathios said.

Mathios said a Blue Security armed response officer arrested a suspect in Assagay after he saw him walking suspiciously along Kassier Road carrying what appeared to be a brand new fax machine and cables. The incident occurred at around 9.30pm. “The officer approached the suspect who alleged that he had found the fax machine and cables in a dustbin at a local shopping centre in Hillcrest. Hillcrest SAPS members attended the scene and took the suspect into custody to the police station for further questioning,” Mathios said.
