Alberton News: Suspect arrested in South Crest for theft of gate motors

In the early hours of yesterday morning  Special Operations Group (SOG) received a report of two persons walking down Eeuwfees Str, South Crest, Alberton.

They dispatched their dedicated South Crest vehicle to investigate and the response officer spotted the two suspects.

The Response Officer managed to detain one of the two suspects while the other managed to escape by jumping the fence of one of the properties.

In the possession of the detained suspect, SOG found a pickaxe head used to lift gates or break the security gates.

The suspect was placed under arrest and then admitted to being in the area to steal gate motors.

According to SOG, South Crest has been plagued by theft of gate motors and outside beams over the last months, with three stolen this past Friday night.
