The incident happened at about 4am today 17th 05 2022. The patrol team sighted four people and moved in to make arrests, but one managed to get away, and only three were arrested.
Upon body search of the three suspects, the officers recovered housebreaking implements.
Meanwhile, the continuous patrol in the area led police to a vehicle that seemed abandoned.
