Murder Suspects Arrested During Routine Roadblock

On Friday 14th June 2024, during a routine stop and search roadblock, Durban North CPF members assisted Durban Metro Police with stopping a suspicious vehicle.

Whilst the vehicle was being checked, the one suspect fled the scene, with some of our CPF members giving chase. The suspect fled into a nearby office park, by which time Durban Metro Police and SAPS members had joined our members in the chase. The suspect, who was found hiding in the office block, was apprehended a short while later by Durban Metro Police and was escorted back to his vehicle.

Durban North CPF, Metro and SAPS members conducted a thorough search of the vehicle and found a human body which had been covered with cardboard and bags containing clothing and blankets. Medics were called to the scene and confirmed the person was deceased.

The driver and the passenger were detained and are currently being held at the Durban North SAPS station for further investigation.

We would like to commend our members, as well as the law enforcement officers for their swift response and decisive actions resulting in the apprehension of the suspects.

The roadblock yielded other successes, notably:

– 16 arrests (14 males, 2 females)

– Highest alcohol reading: 0.71mg/1

– Lowest alcohol reading: 0.28mg/1

– 2 PRDP drivers
