SWIFT action by Port Shepstone SAPS on Thursday morning, led to the arrest of two men who are believed to be involved in robberies in the Port Shepstone CBD.

Off-duty Warrant Officer Patrick Gosling from Port Shepstone SAPS requested back-up when he noticed the suspicious looking men in a green Toyota Tazz in the CBD.

Constables Sibusiso Cele, Sandile Mpisane and Selby Cele from the 10111 call centre were first to stop the vehicle. Public Order Policing members also arrived.

“One of the men threw an Absa bank card on the ground when police approached him,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

The two were arrested and it was established that the card had been stolen the previous day during a robbery when a woman was robbed of her wallet and cellphones.

“The two will be charged for possession of stolen property and the Toyota Tazz will be impounded pending further investigation,” said Wiid.

“The community are urged to contact the police with information regarding criminals who rob people of their hard-earned money. Be alert about your surroundings and people who could be potential robbers, especially during rush hour,” she added.
