Officer K. Foca was working as the Deloitte/The Ridge Patrol Officer at the V&A Waterfront on the night of 8 February 2022. He received a call on the radio from Surveillance at approximately 03h38 to inform him of a silver Jeep that has entered the Deloitte parking area. He responded and found the vehicle in the parking area.
The Officer approached the vehicle and asked if he can help them. The driver said thar they were looking for a hotel room. The Officer offered to help and asked them to stay there while he found out about the best place to go. The Officer meanwhile recognized the driver as the suspect involved in the tampering of a motorbike in the Merchant House parking area few days earlier.
Foca then informed the surveillance that it was the suspects from the previous incident and the ERT responded.
Five suspects were taken for questioning and were searched. Various items were found in their possession, for e.g. motorbike keys, tools, knives and a helmet. The one suspect was confirmed to have been involved in the attempted theft of a motorcycle on site only days before.
SAPS were called and the suspects were arrested.
As WOLF GROUP we are extremely proud of great work such as this done by our officers.
