Thefts rife in the past week

The Rep - - NEWS -

LAST Mon­day night, Red Guard re­sponse of­fi­cers at­tended to a panic alarm at a house in Ez­i­be­leni where they ap­pre­hended a sus­pect who lived in the house and stole cash from the home­owner, op­er­a­tions man­ager Wil­lie Rey­necke told The Rep. The sus­pect was handed over to the po­lice.

On Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, re­sponse of­fi­cers were sum­moned to a shop where they ap­pre­hended a sus­pect who was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol and caus­ing prob­lems. He, too, was handed over to the po­lice. The se­cu­rity of­fi­cer on duty at a butch­ery ap­pre­hended a sus­pect for theft of meat, but it was re­cov­ered and re­turned be­fore the sus­pect was handed over.

On Satur­day morn­ing, the com­pany’s 24-hour con­trol room re­ceived a call re­gard­ing an armed rob­bery at a cash loan busi­ness. Re­sponse of­fi­cers as­sisted the man­ager to re­strain the sus­pect and hand him over to po­lice.

On Sun­day morn­ing, re­sponse of­fi­cers at­tended to an alarm at a house in Berry Street where they ap­pre­hended the sus­pect in­side the premises.

It was be­lieved to be the same sus­pect who had bro­ken in at the house the week be­fore be­cause he was car­ry­ing clothes stolen from the premises a week ear­lier. The sus­pect was handed over to the po­lice. – Rep re­porter
