Butterfly World suspects nabbed before they could ‘fly away’

Police have taken two suspects into custody after they allegedly tried to burgle the popular Butterfly World on the R44 near Klapmuts this weekend.

 

“One of our armed response officers responded to an alarm signal just after 3am on Saturday morning and went to investigate,” says Verena Hulme, Cape Town North district manager at Fidelity ADT.

 

On arrival at the address, the officer found the front door was forced open. He searched the premises and found two unidentified suspects still inside.

 

“Both suspects were successfully apprehended and handed over into the custody of the SAPS. My advice for everyone who lives and works in the Klapmuts area is to make sure their security systems are tested regularly, with particular attention on the battery backups which will help keep the system operating when there is any planned or unplanned power cuts,” says Hulme.
