Sunset Beach | Bay Beach Avenue
At 4.07 on the morning of 28th July, 2020, our Control Room noticed, on the cameras, a suspect jumping over the wall of a property in Bay Beach Avenue. The dedicated Crime Watch vehicle patrolling Sunset Beach was alerted and 3 other Crimewatch vehicles were despatched as backup. Control Room monitored the suspects and noted that there were 2 suspects hiding in the vlei, corner of Bay Beach Avenue and Ocean Way. Our Armed Response Officers were informed and were on the scene within 2 minutes. While Armed Response Officer Kwanele was checking the vlei, he disturbed the suspects who jumped over the wall into a property in Ocean Way, monitored by Star Alarms. The owner of the property called Star Alarms to check his premises, but found no suspects. Saps were informed and they arrived on the scene. In the meantime, Crime Watch Armed Response officers Kwanele and Thabo continued to search the vlei and found the stolen items, which included electronic equipment, and these were returned them to the owners in Bay Beach Avenue. Access had been gained via the removal of the patio door. Further review of all CCTV cameras continues.
Well done to the Crimewatch team, for our observation and diligence. Great effort on everyone’s part in monitoring the suspects and finding the stolen goods.
