Community patrollers assist in arrest

Several plastic chairs were seized by Primrose police during the arrest of an 18-year-old man.

An 18-year-old man was arrested by the Primrose police, last Tuesday, and charged for possession of suspected stolen property.

The arrest was made with the help of community patrollers.

“The complainant alleged that he received a complaint from another community patroller informing him that she had seen a young man walking down Pollock Street carrying several plastic chairs,” explained Sgt Styles Maome, communications officer for the Primrose police.

The patrollers rushed to the street where they found the accused.

“They stopped him and asked where he had obtained the chairs and why he was carrying them down the road so late at night,” said Maome.

The suspected reportedly told the patrollers that he got them from a local restaurant in AG De Witt Drive.

“The patrollers brought the man, and the chairs, to the Primrose Police Station.

“We thank the community patrollers for helping us to reduce crime in our area,” said Maome.
