After many months of repeated house breakings in the Pringle and Rooi Els area, a combined effort on the part of a few Pringle Bay residents, ASK Security and the Kleinmond Police resulted in the arrest of 3 male suspects believed to have been responsible for a large number of house breakings in the area.
After responding to a call for assistance from ASK Security, Constable C. Booyse stopped a white Toyota sedan between the first and second parking bays outside Rooi Els on the mountain pass.
Although the driver was detained, there was believed to be 2 suspects that had fled on foot in the bushes between the roadway and the rocks at the sea. One suspect was found hiding in the bushes and was subsequently detained by Constable BL Hearne. The Kleinmond Police flooded the area with police officials including the K9 Unit, tracker dogs and the 2nd suspect that had fled on foot was caught and detained.
The above success clearly shows that co-operation between different parties play a vital role in keeping our area safe and secure.
Captain Marthinus expressed his gratitude to everybody involved.
