THE housebreaking suspect who escaped from the care of Detective Basil Crouse in the Port Shepstone CBD last week has turned himself in to Port Shepstone police.

Vuyani Jerome Chiliza had escaped from the police vehicle that Crouse was driving last Wednesday and ran away while Crouse shot at him.

Police searched the CBD for over an hour without any success.

Chiliza appeared in the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s court yesterday morning where his case was remanded for further investigation.
