Thanks to an anonymous tip, seven persons have been arrested on suspicion of stealing motorcycles and other items, according to Brigadier David Mbongeni Ngcobo, commander of the Ivory Park SAPS station.
Early this morning, local police in Extension Seven of Ivory Park, aided by a member of Community in Blue, captured the trio. We have seen several such incidents, but the police have been successful in apprehending the offenders.
Following up on the leads provided, the police tracked down the suspects as they were taking the bicycles. Immediately upon their discovery, they were taken into custody and lodged in the Ivory Park SAPS cells.
They also managed to seize the two vehicles the suspects were using to transport themselves and the components they were supplying. It's a significant concern that these criminals are able to steal most of the vehicles that people purchase.
All of the suspects, who range in age from 24 to 41 and are all new citizens, are scheduled to appear in the Tembisa Magistrate's Court on Monday to answer for their roles in the appropriation and possession of stolen property.
The Ivory Park South African Police Service would like to thank the member of the public who came forward with information; as a force, we are deeply troubled by the prevalence of crime in our country, and your tip has proven to be invaluable.
The police feel that without this sign of civic duty, they would not have had a chance to apprehend the individuals responsible for the violations.
Since it is difficult for the authorities to catch criminals, and since everyone with knowledge of such behavior or wrongdoings is free to follow the aforementioned model and remove criminal components from the community, we do have a bothersome issue overall.
