Gauteng's most wanted suspect to appear in the Temba Magistrates' Court

26 September 2021 | From Arrive Alive

Gauteng's most wanted suspect to appear in the Temba Magistrates' Court tomorrow, 27 September 2021, for business robbery and possession of suspected stolen vehicle. This followed after an alert Detective/Constable of SAPS Temba swiftly responded to a business robbery that had just taken place in Stinkwater and subsequently arresting one of the perpetrators. 

The Detective/Constable was on his lunch break when he received information on a business robbery in progress where four suspects with a firearm have robbed a hardware store. The suspects' vehicle was described as a metallic blue, Toyota Yaris. As he was rushing to the crime scene in an unmarked police vehicle, he came across the suspects' car and a chase ensued. Three of the suspects jumped out of the moving vehicle and fled on foot, he cornered the driver with assistance from the community. 

Preliminary investigations on the scene revealed that the arrested suspect has a warrant of arrest issued for three cash-in-transit robberies that occurred in Akasia (2010), Soshanguve and Eersterust (2017), and that he was on the top five list of Gauteng's most wasted suspects. 

The suspect's vehicle was seized and it was later discovered that it had been stolen in Garankuwa last month. 

The Provincial Commissioner of Gauteng, Lieutenant General Elias Mawela has commended the member's bravery for going after business robbers on his own. "Though the Det/Constable had called for back-up as per procedure, his instinct and quick action without any care for his own safety, has resulted in the arrest of one of our most wanted suspects," commended Lt Gen Mawela. 

The Provincial Commissioner also praised the community members that assisted the member during the arrest saying that with their support the police managed to remove a dangerous suspect from the streets of Temba, making it a safer place for its residents.
