Two constables of Wynberg Police Station got a pat on the back for a job well done.

Wynberg police spokesperson Captain Ntomboxolo Nqunqeka says constables Mcebisi Nxelelwa and Shaun Jansen were doing patrols in Station Road last week, when they came across a suspicious man who was running towards the taxi rank in Station Road.

“They gave chase without knowing if the guy had committed crime and noticed that someone was running after the man. They managed to catch the man with a bag of money which had R28 000 in it.

“It belonged to the business owner of Station Liquors as he identified it. The thief had grabbed the bag from the business owner and the strap of the bag broke.”

“The officers handed the money back to the owner and he proceeded with the bank deposit.

“The suspect was arrested and charged with common robbery. He appeared in Wynberg Magistrate’s Court last Friday,” says Nqunqeka.
