Port Shepstone suspect nabbed

The Port Shepstone South African Police Service (SAPS) recently took custody of a suspected thief thanks to the rapid response of a local security company.

The Fidelity ADT Security Monitoring Centre received a panic signal from a local business in Bazley Street and immediately dispatched Armed Response Officer (ARO), Christopher Zulu, who arrived at the Port Shepstone premises within minutes.

“All our ARO’s are equipped with in-vehicle tablet devices which enable them to receive auto dispatch signals as soon as a customer’s alarm is activated, enhancing response times. In any emergency situation we are all aware that time is of the essence and we therefore ensure that all our responses are done in an effective and efficient manner. In addition, and in line with regulations to control and prevent the spread of the coronavirus we have provided all our staff with the necessary PPE equipment to ensure the safety of both our employees and customers,” explains Fidelity ADT’s District Manager for KwaZulu-Natal, Vaughan Pillay.

Upon arrival, the officer spoke with the business owner who informed him that two suspects had stolen two air conditioners and a microwave and then fled into the nearby bush before he activated his alarm.

Officer Zulu obtained a description of the suspects and then proceeded to search the nearby area. He soon spotted one of the suspects and managed to apprehend him before he could get away. The suspect was handed over for arrest to members of the Port Shepstone SAPS.

“We commend officer Zulu for his swift response and bravery. I encourage both residents and businesses to conduct regular security assessments in order to resolve any vulnerable or unprotected areas to deter opportunistic criminals. Security technologies such as CCTV, outdoor beams and roof passives are often used to proactively prevent crime,” concluded Pillay.
