Of­fi­cers foil tav­ern break-in

The Rep - - NEWS -

TWICE in one day last week Red Guard se­cu­rity of­fi­cers at a su­per­mar­ket ap­pre­hended sus­pects for theft, op­er­a­tions man­ager Wil­lie Rey­necke told The Rep. The sus­pected stolen goods were re­cov­ered and re­turned and the sus­pects handed over to the po­lice.

Soon af­ter mid­night a res­i­dent at Mel­ton Gar­dens called the com­pany’s 24-hour con­trol room for as­sis­tance as there were sus­pects on his premises. Re­sponse of­fi­cers ap­pre­hended two sus­pects who had at­tempted to steal tools from the garage, but noth­ing was taken and the com­plainant de­clined to open a case.

On Fri­day night a per­son re­ported that sus­pects were at­tempt­ing to break in at a tav­ern, but they ran away when they saw the re­sponse of­fi­cers.

A sus­pect was ap­pre­hended for theft from a butch­ery on Satur­day and handed over to the po­lice, and that af­ter­noon re­sponse of­fi­cers at­tended to a panic at a tav­ern, where they ap­pre­hended three sus­pects who at­tempted to rob the owner.

In the early hours of Sun­day re­sponse of­fi­cers were sum­moned by an alarm at a gen­eral dealer’s, where they ap­pre­hended one sus­pect who was handed over to the po­lice.

That af­ter­noon two peo­ple were ap­pre­hended for theft from a su­per­mar­ket.

The stolen goods were re­cov­ered and the sus­pects handed over.
