Cape Town - Police have arrested two members of a crowbar burglary gang after an alert home owner reported an attempted break-in to his neighbourhood watch.
Neighbourhood watches around Cape Town hailed the relatively recent roll-out of a two-way radio network specifically for them, after the arrest.
“Yesterday [Thursday], at approximately 10.25am, a home owner in Keurboom Street, Amandelrug, Kuils River, heard a loud noise at his front door and noticed that his safety gate was forcefully opened,” said police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Andre Traut. “He also noticed a suspect in possession of a crowbar.”
The men fled in a car and the description was communicated to police vehicles in the area.
The vehicle was pulled over on the Stellenbosch arterial road. The two occupants were arrested and a crowbar was found on the back seat, Traut said. - Cape Argus
