Members of Kimberley Crime prevention police arrested a 37-year-old man, following the break-in, into a vehicle which was parked in the Kimberley CBD. Suspect was arrested after the owner of the vehicle reported to the police about his vehicle which was broken-into while he went into one of the local store in the CBD.

The suspects smashed the rear doors’ window and grabbed the video camera and binoculars, which were put on the back seat of the vehicle.

The suspect was found in possession of a video camera while trying to sell it at the taxi rank. Other suspect fled and abandoned the binoculars when he realised that his accomplice was arrested. He abandoned the binoculars inside the taxi and fled on foot.
