A wanted suspect was apprehended by Fidelity ADT on the 25 July after he was spotted on Migmatite Road in Zwartkop, by a community member at around 08:00 that day.
Fidelity ADT Reaction officer Khisimusi Mahlaule received a call on his community radio advising that there were suspicious people scouting around the houses along Konglomoraat street. Reaction officer Mahlaule responded immediately and quickly located the suspicious suspect who was pretending to look for a job. Community members and Lyttleton SAPS arrived soon after and confirmed that the suspect was indeed wanted for allegedly being involved in several crimes around the area.
Leon Muller, District Manager for Fidelity ADT, says this success indicates the importance of community security initiatives. “We all have a role to play in securing our suburbs. Suspects often rely on informants in communities to share valuable intel which can help them perpetrate crimes. United communities are harder to infiltrate and I encourage everyone to support their neighbourhood security schemes and communication groups. By working together, we can achieve more successes like this and tighten the net around criminals.”
