POLICE in Kimberley have arrested a long-outstanding wanted suspect.
On Wednesday at about 7.15 pm, the Kimberley Detectives followed up on information and after several attempts managed to arrest the suspect.
The 29-year-old male was arrested in Community Road in Florianville, Kimberley. He is wanted for more than eight cases related to house break in and thefts and theft out of motor vehicles. The suspect should appear in the Kimberley Magistrates’ Court soon.
On Tuesday, the Kimberley SAPS Flying Squad also foiled an alleged business burglary.
It is alleged that the three male suspects climbed onto the roof of a wellknown shopping centre in the Kimberley CBD and proceeded to cut an aerial and the wires of the alarm system.
Community members alerted the police and the Flying Squad responded. The men were arrested for attempted business burglary and police also found and confiscated bags with business burglary equipment from the suspects.
