Eastern Cape: Integrated coordination by several Clusters within the SAPS, Traffic Officials and Security Services led to the arrest of two suspects who were being sought for house robberies.
At approximately 14:45 yesterday, a local security manager from Grahamstown alerted the SAPS that they were following a vehicle on the N2 from Grahamstown towards Peddie. The occupants, three males were allegedly involved in a house robbery at Grahamstown. The vehicle was circulated through several emergency channels. Officials from Peddie, Port Alfred, East London, and King Williams Town responded, setting up roadblocks, vehicle checkpoints and vigorously patrolled their routes.The chase ended when the driver lost control and overturned the vehicle near Kidds Beach. Two of the three suspects were arrested as they attempted to flee whilst the third suspect fled the scene.
The suspects will appear in the Grahamstown Magistrates Court later this week and face several charges including house robbery, malicious damage to property and reckless and negligent driving.
