The vigilance of a motorist took another criminal off the street.

According to Captain Molefe Mogodi, spokesperson for Bramley Police Station, a 33-year-old man was arrested for possession of a dangerous weapon. “A good citizen was stationary at the traffic lights of Grayston Drive and De Villiers Graaf Motorway (M1) and saw a man who looked suspicious next to a Jeep vehicle which drove off when the robots turned green.

“The man then allegedly turned towards the vigilant motorist’s car, pulled out a firearm and pointed it at her. The complainant alerted a security officer who happened to be around there. The officer gave chase and the suspect was eventually arrested. He was found in possession of a toy gun.

“The police will profile the suspect to try and find out whether he is involved in other crimes in the area or elsewhere.” He said the police are working on the matter and the suspect will appear in court soon.

“The police are grateful that we still have community members who care about helping the police to combat crime in the area.”

Other arrests made by Bramley police include:

  • 11 for drunk driving
  • 2 for assault related to domestic violence
  • 2 for possession of dagga
  • 1 for rape
  • One arrest made for shoplifting
  • 2 for possession of suspected stolen property
  • 1 for contravention of the Maintenance Act
  • 5 for theft
  • 4 for fraud
  • 2 for reckless and negligent driving
  • 1 for shoplifting
  • 1 for malicious damage to property
  • 2 for contravention of the Firearms Control Ac.t

Molefe urged community members to report all types of crime to police.
