Officers tackle tavern rumpus
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.
