Vigilant SAPS work pays off

2015-08-27 06:01

POLICE members attached to the Port Shepstone 10111 call centre, saw a suspicious vehicle in the Marburg area while they were on routine patrols at 1.15pm on Tuesday.

They stopped the bakkie and checked the identification numbers and found that the numbers did not correspond.

Further investigation revealed that the chassis and other parts belonged to a vehicle which was stolen during a house robbery in April 2011 in the Paddock area.

During the house robbery, the owner and his wife were held up by armed suspects.

They later fled with their vehicle, cellphones, a camera and cash.

Four suspects were found in the vehicle­.

They are in police custody, pending further investigation.

A possession of stolen property case is being investigated.

Sergeant Melvin Newell, Constable Randhir Dhaniram, Constable Sydwell Mbhele and Constable Mthembeni Ndlovu made the arrests.

The vehicle was impounded.

“Port Shepstone cluster commander, Major-General Thembi Ndlovu, praised the members for their diligence,” said police spokeperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.
