A BREAK in the case of the Crinkley Bottom murder was made on Thursday, November 1, as South Africa Community Crime Watch (SACCW) operations received valuable information with regards to a person wanted in connection with the shooting that took place that day.

The shooting, which occurred in May, saw manager Adrian van Wyk murdered in seeming cold-blood.

SACCW founder, Steven King, confirmed that they received information about the wanted individual in connection with the murder case.

“Information was relayed and the suspect’s vehicle was seen by the police. He then tried to run away, which resulted in him causing an accident in the process.

“The suspect was then found in the Pinetown area after he had fled and crashed into another vehicle and ended up on his roof,” King said.

King confirmed that the man was then arrested by the police and a firearm was recovered. The suspect is being detained in police custody and will appear in court soon.

King said he would like salute the SACCW members and police involved for the great work on the arrest.
