ON THURSDAY afternoon, the SA Community Crime Watch (SACCW) received information related to a house robbery which took place in Westriding.

SACCW founder Steven King said that the information led the SAPS to the suspect in KwaNyuswa, where he was arrested and some of the items taken during the robbery where recovered.

“We would like to thank the SAPS members from Pinetown and Hillcrest for the outstanding work and commitment shown in the performance of their duties and their commitment to the safety of the communities,” said King.

“We are heading into the festive season and, from past history, we all know that the crime will increase.

“We urge all our community members to join hands with the SAPS in a concerted effort to keep criminals out of our neighbourhoods by applying the basics of personal safety around the home, business and while travelling,” he said.

In conclusion, he advised community members to stay vigilant and report any suspicious persons and activities to SAPS on 10111, to their neighbourhood watch or WhatsApp SACCW at 082 920 5799.
