ON Tuesday, September 12, at around 1pm, Mountain Rise Crime Prevention members responded to a housebreaking in Kadirval Road, Northdale.

The station’s spokesperson, Captain Gay Ebrahim said: “Upon arrival, the police members tactfully approached the premises and immediately saw two unknown males attempting to break into the house.

“The members entered the premises and swiftly apprehended both suspects aged between 21 and 23. Police also seized house-breaking implements that were found in possession of the suspects.”

On further investigation the police officers were able to positively link the two suspects to four other cases of housebreaking and theft.

Both suspects will appear in court soon after being formally charged with the offence.

“According to information received by our officers, the community was happy and commended the members for their swift response and the apprehension of these suspects. Another community member sang praises for the Mountain Rise Police officers who attended the crime scene,” Ebrahim said.

SAPS Mountain Rise Station Commander Brigadier Boxer Pillay said the community must be applauded for the role they played in ensuring the suspects were arrested by being so vigilant and alerting the police.

“I really would like to take this opportunity to encourage the entire community that falls under the boundary of Mountain Rise policing precinct, to come on board and establish a good working relationship with the police so that crime can be addressed collectively resulting in community policing partnership,” Pillay­ said.
