During a routine parole Hout Bay police officers arrested two men almost red-handed – for various crimes, including possession of burglary equipment and stolen goods.

Warrant Officer Tanya Lesch, spokesperson of the Hout Bay police station, says the arrests occurred in the early morning hours of Monday last week when a police officer pulled over a suspicious car in Princess Road in Hout Bay.

Lesch says the red, blue and black Golf with two occupants were searched and both suspects were taken to the police station for questioning.

Upon searching the car the police found house and car break-in implements and the suspects were also in possession of dangerous weapons and suspected stolen goods.

“The suspects will be linked with several other cases that were reported, including theft out of motor vehicles, house robberies and robbery,” she says.

The two suspects are from Mitchell’s Plain and are 25 and 36 years old.

Lesch says they also found that the licence and details of the car did not match, so it was also confiscated.

Both suspects appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday last week
