On Friday last week our Armed Response Officers rushed to a panic alarm activation at a business in Main Road Somerset West. As the Officers stood down the owner of the shop informed them that a suspect had grabbed items in the shop and ran out without paying.

He showed our Officers video footage of the suspect in the shop and asked them to be on the lookout for him. On Saturday, Neighborhood Watch Officer, Danino Fielies was on duty in the Neighborhood Watch Support vehicle (N99 Sponsored by Secure Rite) and doing crime prevention patrols in Main Road, Somerset West.

He happened to recognize the suspect who was in the area at the time that the shop owner had reported the previous day. Officer Fielies called for back up and Tango 2 from AM Security came to assist. The suspect was detained and handed over to Somerset West SAPS.

Well done to everyone on a fantastic job!
