BLUE Security armed response officers swooped on the scene of a business robbery and arrested four suspects who were driving what was believed to be a stolen truck in Maydon Wharf on Monday afternoon.
Blue Security community and media liaison officer Andreas Mathios said two armed response officers had responded to the scene of the robbery in Johnstone Road at around 3.50pm.

He said: “One of the several security guards working on site pressed a panic alarm when he realised that a truck with no authorisation to collect cargo from the property had arrived and suspects had started loading the truck with goods.”
Blue officers arrived swiftly and arrested all four suspects including the driver.
Mathios said charges of robbery and theft were opened against the suspects and mentioned that “the suspects were handed over to the Maydon Wharf SAPS.
Once the police had questioned the suspects, police officers returned to the scene with one of our armed response officers and arrested three security guards on site in connection with the incident.”
