EMPD officer nabs most wanted suspect

One of the scenes from last Tuesday's robbery and shoot-out. One of the suspects reportedly collapsed on Pine Road while attempting to flee.

Residents have sung the praises of Superintendent Grant Glen for his role in the arrest of one of the suspects involved in last Tuesday’s shoot-out in Bedfordview.

Captain André de Jager, spokesperson for the Bedfordview SAPS, said the man was positively linked to five cases within the Ekurhuleni region.

He said the case is investigated by the Cluster Trio Team.

The Bedfordview Community Policing Forum (BCPF) said the arrest is hugely significant and a victory for the community.

“The suspect has four outstanding warrants of arrest and a rap sheet [criminal record] of 32 pages long. He is wanted for various schedule six offences and is therefore unlikely to get bail,” said the BCPF.

Cpt de Jager said the suspect was one of the most wanted in the region.

Ward 20 councillor, Clr Jill Humphreys, also congratulated Supt Glen on the successful arrest.

At the time of going to press it was unclear what other charges the suspect faces.

He was also due to appear in court while his accomplice is under police guard at Tembisa Hospital.

On Tuesday, the suspect and his accomplices allegedly robbed a woman of her Rolex watch and cellphone after following her from a local shopping centre.

The items were later recovered.
