TSI INTERVENTION LEADS TO POLICE INVESTIGATIONS AND ARREST
We are pleased to report two success stories from the TSI:
- A man who checked into Angel’s Place Guesthouse in Pretoria reportedly fired a gunshot through the television in his room, while also being suspected for dealing in drugs. After viewing the scene, guesthouse staff noticed the damaged television and a number of empty tablet containers. The incident was reported to SAPS as well as the TSI. After weeks of no action from the Police, the TSI approached the office of the Provincial Secretariat for Police in Gauteng to escalate the lack of response by the police. It did not take long for SAPS to investigate the scene and arrest a suspect after intervention by the Provincial Secretariat. The suspect has apparently sold the gun used but has agreed to show police the person to whom he sold it to. We will update you on these developments.
- For many years, a man by the name of Johan Kotze was suspected of stealing from a number of B&Bs and Guesthouses across South Africa. Mr. Kotze was able to steal television sets and other appliances from guesthouses in the middle of the night whilst the owners were sleeping. Through initiative by the NAA-SA vice chair, who works closely with the TSI, Mr. Johan Kotze was arrested and has already been convicted of theft and sentenced to 18 months imprisonment.
