Quick re­sponse halts break-in

The Rep - - NEWS -

RE­SPONSE of­fi­cers in Lady Frere re­sponded to an alarm at a shop late on Satur­day night and found there had been an at­tempted break-in, oper­a­tions man­ager Wil­lie Rey­necke said.

How­ever, no en­try was gained as a re­sult of the quick re­sponse.

Soon af­ter, the se­cu­rity of­fi­cer on duty at a hard­ware store in Eng­cobo no­ticed a hole in the fence and a sus­pect steal­ing a gas bot­tle.

He could not ap­pre­hend the sus­pect but did re­cover the gas bot­tle.

On Sun­day evening, re­sponse of­fi­cers in Eng­cobo at­tended to a panic at a food out­let.

They ap­pre­hended a sus­pect who had robbed the owner of cash. The money was re­cov­ered and the sus­pect handed over to po­lice. – Rep re­porter
