Of­fi­cers tackle tav­ern rum­pus

The Rep - - NEWS - – Rep re­porter

RED Guard re­sponse of­fi­cers were sum­moned to a tav­ern where a cus­tomer had threat­ened the bar­tender and bro­ken liquor bot­tles last Mon­day evening, op­er­a­tions man­ager Wil­lie Rei­necke told The Rep.

The man was ap­pre­hended and handed over to po­lice.

On Tues­day night, the prompt re­ac­tion of a re­sponse of­fi­cer pre­vented a crime when he in­ves­ti­gated an alarm at a busi­ness premises.

On ar­rival he saw some­one run­ning away and, on closer in­ves­ti­ga­tion, found that a hole had been made in the roof, but the al­leged per­pe­tra­tor had not had the chance to com­mit any fur­ther crime.

The win­dow of a cash loan busi­ness was bro­ken on Wed­nes­day night and re­sponse of­fi­cers were sum­moned by a panic but­ton, but the youth in­volved was re­leased as the owner de­clined to open a case.

On Satur­day af­ter­noon, the com­pany’s 24-hour con­trol room was phoned by a mem­ber of the pub­lic who re­ported that cor­ru­gated iron was be­ing stolen from the old power sta­tion. Re­sponse of­fi­cers ap­pre­hended two sus­pects, but as they had noth­ing in­crim­i­nat­ing with them, they were warned and re­moved from the premises.

In the early hours of Sun­day morn­ing, a panic alarm was ac­ti­vated at a tav­ern where one pa­tron had stabbed an­other with a knife.

Re­sponse of­fi­cers handed the sus­pect over to the po­lice.
