Within 24 hours after committing the crime, Marshall Security and the Phoenix Trio Crime Unit captured three accused commercial thieves. Marshall Security spokeswoman Tyron Powell said the company was collaborating with the Phoenix Trio Crime Unit on information after a commercial theft in uMhlanga, north of Durban, on Friday night. Three individuals were apprehended within 24 hours of attempting to dump the stolen property.
Powell said that at around 7.30 p.m. on Friday, the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre was notified of a commercial burglary at a well-known office building on Ridge Road that was not monitored by Marshall. "Three individuals in a silver Toyota Etios forced their way into a contact center and grabbed an unspecified number of computer towers," Powell added.
He stated that less than 24 hours later, at approximately 5.30pm on Saturday afternoon, members of their Special Operations Team working with the Phoenix Trio Crime Unit on intelligence in connection with the burglary spotted a vehicle matching the description of the one used in the business burglary on Amanzimtoti Road in the KwaMashu area.
"Through a collaborative effort with the Phoenix Trio Crime Unit, the car was halted and three individuals matching the description of those engaged in the commercial burglary were apprehended instantly. When officers searched the truck, they discovered and recovered 16x computer towers that had been taken during the company crime," Powell added.
"The suspects are thought to have been on their way to sell the stolen stuff when they were apprehended," Powell added. He said that the three suspects, stolen property, and the vehicle used to commit the crime were transported to the KwaMashu police station for additional investigation and processing. Colonel Thembeka Mbele, a police spokeswoman, said three males aged 33 to 36 were scheduled to appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court on charges of possessing suspected stolen items.
