Dedication towards their vocation and the efficient training of our four-legged partners, led to the successful apprehension of a 30-year-old burglary suspect at a business in Kariega.
Alert SAPS Uitenhage K9 members responded immediately to a complaint of a burglary in progress at 05:30 on Saturday, 9 April 2022 in Durban Street, Kariega.
Members suspected that the suspect/s might still be inside the premises and with the assistance of the keyholder entrance was gained. Newly trained Uitenhage K9, Razor tested his expertise when he was released inside the premises. His senses immediately sniffed out a suspect that was hiding inside a part of the roof.
The 30-year-old male was arrested on the scene and detained on charges ranging from attempted housebreaking and theft, malicious damage to property and possession of suspected stolen property. (The suspect was found in possession of copper pipes and aircon pipes).
The suspect is due to appear in the Kariega magistrates’ court on Monday, 11 April 2022 on the said charges.
