9 suspects apprehended for cable theft, illegal electricity connections in CT

Municipal law enforcement officers have been able to apprehend nine suspects who were in connection with cable theft and illegal electricity connections.

On Saturday, the Metal Theft made moves according to a tip-off and were able to catch three suspects with three metres of electric cable and 13 bundles of copper wire at a house in Westbank.

The unit also responded to a complaint of railway cable being stolen in Berkley Road in Maitland.

This led to the arrest of two men and eight metres of cable was gotten back.

The attack on infrastructure, particularly of the rail network, is relentless. The speedy reaction of the metro police officers is commendable, but it is imperative that the criminal justice system secures convictions and lengthy jail terms for cable thieves,” said the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, in a statement on Monday.

This will send a message that cable theft and other infrastructural damage cannot be condoned. Apart from the massive impact on communities, it continues to hamper our economy at a time when we can ill afford it.”
