On 17 November 2016 a well-known copper cable suspect and collaborator was arrested by the SAPS following months of investigation work and intelligence gathering by the SAPS and Thorburn Security Solutions. The suspects (whose details cannot be disclosed due to the ongoing investigation) were part of an armed syndicate which targets the mines for theft of copper cable. The syndicate members do not hesitate to use firearms and in at least two incidents, shots were fired at security personnel in the Steelpoort Area.


One of the suspects was found in possession of a variety of power tools, 15 x cell phones and a stolen rifle. The rifle was reported stolen in Musina during a housebreaking incident. The suspects have been positively identified by Security Officers who were on duty at the time of the armed robberies and whose cell phones were stolen during the attacks. One of the suspects is to appear in the Gauteng court on a case of murder.


On 19 November 2016 a third member of the syndicate was arrested after being positively identified by a Security Official for a housebreaking incident that had occurred three days prior.


Following the arrests, the theft of copper cable and armed robbery incidents have drastically decreased. Bail was opposed and investigation continues, with more arrests expected to follow. Thorburn is working closely with the SAPS in terms of the sharing of intelligence.
