Security company welcomes double arrest

BLUE Security’s armed response officers and residents arrested two criminals across the Highway area at the weekend.

The security company’s community and media liaison officer, Andreas Mathios, said an officer arrested an alleged housebreaker in Malvern on Friday.

“The man attempted to break into a property in St Augustine Crescent at around 2pm. Our officer responded and tracked down the man who fled the scene. He was arrested and handed over to the Malvern police,” Mathios said. 

Mathios said there was another incident at a business premises in Russell Street in Pinetown yesterday. A man was attempting to steal copper-plated wire in broad daylight. The incident occurred at around 8.50am.

The staff member arrested the man when he saw him cutting the wiring. Our officer attended the scene where the man was handed over to the Pinetown SAPS for processing,” Mathios said.
