AN INTELLIGENCE DRIVEN OPERATION YIELDS POSITIVE RESULTS AS MAN ARRESTED WITH STOLEN BUILDING MATERIAL

22 July 2021

An Intelligence-Driven Operation led to the arrest of a 36-year-old man who was found with suspected stolen building material.

“The arrest came after members of the Nelspruit Flying Squad operationalised information gathered by Crime Intelligent members about a man who was in possession of stolen goods in his house. The information led the members to Tinkomeni area in Pienaar at the house of the suspect where he was found in possession of different sorts of building material believed to have been robbed from Hardware PNL in Pienaar Lehawu area. The value of the stolen items is yet to be calculated by the owner.” SAPS provincial spokesperson Brigadier Leonard Hlathi said in a statement

All the stolen items were found hidden in the suspect’s garage and he could not produce proof of payment thereof hence he was arrested.
