Off duty Police officer foils armed robbery.
ServiceExcellence

Limpopo: "When Duty Calls" was put to practice on Tuesday, 08 May 2018, when a Warrant Officer who is on official vacation leave, placed himself on duty and assisted in foiling a business robbery that was about to take place at Sephaku Village in Groblersdal Cluster.

It all started with a message on a WhatsApp group, detailing information about suspects who were about to rob a local shop. True to his calling, the member, who is attached to Zaaiplas police station as Visible Policing Commander, jumped into his private car without hesitation and proceeded to the scene.

The Warrant Officer immediately sprung into action on arrival at the scene, took position together with members of the local police station. The members then pounced on the two suspects who at first attempted to flee to evade arrest. One of the suspects produced a firearm but was shot in the leg before he could use it. Both were apprehended. The second suspect was found in possession of an Okapi knife. One firearm was confiscated and will be sent for ballistic examination to determine if it was not used in the commission of other crimes previously.

The suspects will be charged with Conspiracy to commit Business robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm and dangerous weapon.
