Theft has been an issue in South Africa with cases of theft being reported now and then. It seems nothing has been able to solve this theft issue in the country despite the vast amount of security forces in the country. Sadly, hardworking South Africans are at the receiving end of this menace as they lose their hard-earned properties to petty thieves.
One of the regular kinds of theft in SA is car hijackings. It has been noted that car hijackers usually break into people's houses to steal their vehicles while others do it in broad daylight. However, others engage in the theft of copper cables or batteries used in public facilities.
A man has been arrested in 2nd Avenue, Alberton North, Gauteng, after a member of the public called the attention of a private security operative named CPS Security to the scene. It was gathered that the concerned citizen noticed that 4 unknown men were breaking into the business premises.
Thankfully, CPS Security dispatched its reaction units in time, however, they only managed to apprehend one of the suspects after they were caught trying to steal the "gate motor" from the premises. In case you don't know what a gate motor is, it is used to motorize the opening or closing of a gate.
Reports say that the remaining suspects fled in a black Mercedes A-Class. When the suspect was apprehended, he was found with implements which would have been used to steal the gate motor.
Alberton SAPS were reportedly contacted and a criminal case was opened. Although the operation was partially successful as only one suspect was caught, the gate motor is still intact and all these are due to a concerned citizen.
