Ladysmith S Africa Feb 18 2019 -- National Security officers Albert Maphalala and Phumlani Memela made an heroic arrest during the early hours of Thursday morning, February 7, after they responded to a robbery.
Speaking to Albert and Phumlani, they say that at around 5am they received an ‘activation’ from a shop in Lyell Street. The officers responded swiftly to the scene and on arrival, they heard noises coming from inside the shop.
They quickly called the key holder so they could get into the premises.
Once inside, they found a TV, laptop and speakers in the ceiling.
The suspects had already removed these items from the store, ready to haul away.
The officers arrested one man and police were alerted. One suspect managed to get away.
National Security say there has been an increase in business robberies in the area over the past few months. They urge businesses in the area to take precautionary measures and be alert at all times.
