The South African Police Service (SAPS) often receives criticism from the community. However, there are police officers who show immense tenacity in their duties.

Newcastle SAPS spokesperson, Lizzy Arumugam explained that the two highly dedicated police officers joined the Newcastle Highway Patrol in October 2021.

“These two members have made multiple successes. The successes included arrests for housebreaking and the arrest of murder suspects. They were also tasked to patrol N11 and R34 Highways and other parts of Amajuba District,” explained Arumugam. 

During this time, she further highlighted that Warrant Officer Rose and Sergeant Mncube successfully recovered more than 78 stolen and hijacked vehicles in and around the Amajuba District in less than four months.

Furthermore, Arumugam added that the two officers’ latest success included a recovered truck, stolen in Perdekop during a business robbery. She explained that police were at the business’s premises in the Manzana area of Osizweni, processing the scene when Rose and Mncube discovered the stolen truck at a homestead.

The two officers were also involved in locating a vehicle that was stolen in Dundee. Working with Tracker SA and Vehicle Crime Investigation Unit (VCIU), Arumugam noted that the officers recovered the vehicle in Osizweni, a mere 40 minutes later and arrested the suspect behind the crime. 

In addition to this, the two officers also played a key role in the case where the Alberton mother, Lesedi Radebe and her infant son went missing during the month of June 2022. While both were found, Warrant Officer Rose and Sergeant Mncube helped bring closure to Radebe’s distraught family.

The Newcastillian – Online News and Pixelfish Marketing commend Warrant Officer Rose and Sergeant Mncube’s dedication, you are what cops should be every day.
