At around 12:40pm the Red Alert control room received a phone call, of a break-in in progress in Pell Street by a concerned neighbor.


That had seen a suspect going through the home and breaking a window while pulling a t.v out. The armed response team was dispatched and on arrival saw that it was a positive break-in through the entire home.

The armed response team searched the area for suspects and through the investigation managed to apprehend one suspect up the road of the home, with stolen cash and goods in her possession.

After the investigation it was found that the domestic worker of the home had staged the entire break-in in order to steal cash and goods from her employers. This was all confirmed from the neighbor and cctv footage. The suspect was then arrested and handed over to the SAPS. Well done to the vigilant neighbor and to the Red Alert officers!!
