TWO suspects were arrested and charged with possession of stolen property, thanks to the sharp reaction of two SAPS members.

“SAPS members Warrant Officer Nkosi Meyiwa and Constable Stefan O’Connell attached to K9 Umlazi was patrolling Moss Kolnick Road on 18 July at 9.30am, when they noticed two suspicious black males walking in the direction of KwaMakhuta carrying two sealed boxes,” Captain Charlene van der Spuy said.

“They stopped and approached them inquiring about the sealed boxes. The suspects alleged that they had picked up the boxes in the bushes next to Galleria Mall. When the members opened the sealed boxes they found the contents to be new shoe display stands.
“With further investigation at the various shops in the mall, it was confirmed from one of the shops that they have a storage unit at the back of the mall where they keep the same stock,” she said. According to Van der Spuy, the boxes with contents was identified to be of the same stock belonging to the store with the estimated value of R10 000.

The suspects were arrested and taken to Amanzimtoti Police Station where they were charged with possession of stolen property.
