Plenty of ac­tion for Red Guard staff

The Rep - - NEWS - – Rep re­porter

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.
