Criminal youngsters arrested after carrying out a robbery

When one hears of the criminals who got arrested on the 30th of September 2021 by members of the police department in a media statement, you will be left wondering where our nation is heading to. Even the youthful generation in South Africa are heavily active in crime. That means that the criminal tendencies are being transferred from generation to generation. Their involvement in crime stems from the background they come from where it is hard to see someone living in a clean lifestyle.

According to the statement, a team of police officers from the Mlungisi Visible Police arrested two youngsters. Their arrest was done after an anonymous member of community made a tip-off to the police.

It was reported that these juveniles had stripped off some essential infrastructure from a library mini substation at a certain locality. Police officers made a follow up on the information they had received and indeed the youngsters were found in possession of the stolen copper cables.

Upon the arrest of the two juveniles, they were taken to a social worker who is employed by the South African Police Services as they are set to go for counseling session. They are said to have been found while in possession of copper cables valued at R250 000. Brigadier Mabel Magqashela who is the Acting Chris Hani District Commissioner welcomed the arrest.

It is widely believed that some adults of this community are using these youngsters to carry out robberies. These youngsters go and rob items which are then handed over to these elders to put on the market. Income which is generated from the criminal operation is then used to enrich these adults.

The police urged members of the public to desist from the habit of using youngsters to commit crime. Adults are supposed to be leading and exemplary lifestyle which the younger generation can emulate from.
