Plenty of action for Red Guard staff
THE past week was an eventful one involving businesses for Red Guard staff, operations manager Willie Reynecke told The Rep.
On Friday evening, security officers at a supermarket apprehended a suspect for theft, returned the stolen goods and handed over the suspect to police.
On Saturday morning, response officers attended to a panic at another supermarket where they apprehended a suspect for theft of a padlock which was recovered and the suspect released when the owner declined to open a case.
That night, response officers attended to an alarm at a liquor outlet where they discovered two big holes in the roof and ceiling and the alarm wires in the process of being cut. They recovered a step ladder and items used during the break-in, but their quick response ensured that the suspects fled without stealing any goods.
The same night, response officers in Cofimvaba attended to an alarm at a school where they found a computer outside an office. There were no signs of forced entry and the principal was unable to attend, so the computer was handed over to the police.
On Sunday afternoon, officers at a supermarket apprehended two suspects for theft.
The goods were returned and the suspects handed over to the police.
