Sus­pect ap­pre­hended for us­ing forged money to buy goods

The Rep - - NEWS -

On Mon­day morn­ing last week, Red Guard re­sponse of­fi­cers at­tended to a panic alarm trig­gered at a cash and carry store where a sus­pect was ap­pre­hended for pur­chas­ing goods with forged money, op­er­a­tions man­ager Wil­lie Rey­necke told The Rep. The sus­pect was handed over to the po­lice.

In the early hours of Tues­day, a re­sponse of­fi­cer on pa­trol no­ticed an el­derly woman walk­ing to the pen­sion pay­out point and spot­ted some sus­pi­cious-look­ing peo­ple fol­low­ing her. He stopped and trans­ported the woman to the po­lice sta­tion.

Last Wed­nes­day night, Red Guard re­sponse of­fi­cers at­tended to an alarm trig­gered at a health shop. They ap­pre­hended the driver of a ve­hi­cle who had driven into the front door of the store and ap­peared to be un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol. The sus­pect was handed over to the po­lice.

On Fri­day night, the com­pany’s 24-hour con­trol room re­ceived a phone call from a driver pass­ing a bank on the Hexagon, re­port­ing that a win­dow was bro­ken. Re­sponse of­fi­cers were dis­patched and from ev­i­dence at the scene it was es­tab­lished that a ve­hi­cle had driven through the win­dow.

They re­quested the bank’s se­cu­rity ser­vice provider to be con­tacted for de­tails of the man­agers to be con­tacted. The of­fi­cers re­mained on site un­til the man­ager ar­rived.

In broad day­light on Satur­day morn­ing, the se­cu­rity of­fi­cer on site at a scrap metal deal­er­ship re­quested as­sis­tance from armed re­sponse.

Of­fi­cers were dis­patched and, with the help of a staff mem­ber, re­cov­ered sev­eral items out­side the premises, in­di­cat­ing that there had been at at­tempt to steal them. The stolen items were re­turned to the premises.

In­stead of en­joy­ing a Sun­day meal, re­sponse of­fi­cers in Lady Frere at­tended to a panic at a hard­ware store.

They chased af­ter two sus­pects who had stolen a win­dow frame from the store.

They man­aged to re­cover the win­dow frame and re­turn it, but the sus­pects could not be ap­pre­hended. – Rep re­porter
