RED Guard se­cu­rity of­fi­cers last week ap­pre­hended two al­leged thieves for rob­bing a liquor store, within an hour.

The stolen goods were re­cov­ered and re­turned and the pair handed over to po­lice. Later that day, re­sponse of­fi­cers were sum­moned to an­other liquor out­let af­ter a panic alarm sounded, but in this in­stance a flat at the rear of the business had been bro­ken into.

On Tues­day night, the com­pany’s 24hour con­trol room was called by the man­ager of a sports bar, who asked for as­sis­tance as a per­son was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol and threat­en­ing the staff with vi­o­lence.

And, on Fri­day af­ter­noon, se­cu­rity of­fi­cers at a su­per­mar­ket ap­pre­hended a mi­nor for theft and less than an hour later, they nabbed an­other who at­tempted to pur­chase goods with fake R200 notes. He was handed over to po­lice. Fake notes were also ten­dered at the same su­per­mar­ket the fol­low­ing day and that sus­pect was also handed over, while the se­cu­rity of­fi­cer at a business in Queen­dus­tria, ap­pre­hended a staff mem­ber who at­tempted to steal build­ing equip­ment.
