Two suspects were arrested in the Olympus area around 04:00 this morning with stolen copper wires in their possession.

A Brinant reaction officer who made the arrest said the suspects were confirmed to be Plastic View informal settlement residents but it was not clear where they stole the copper from.

The two suspects were arrested and handed over to the SAPS.

Earlier yesterday four suspects were arrested and stolen cables recovered during a SAPS Garsfontein and Brinant Security operation on Friday 10 August.

Brinant spokesperson Stephen Wolmarans said the objective of the operation was to search the nature reserve behind Pick n Pay Faerie Glen for vagrants and combat the illegal sale of alcohol.

He said four suspects were arrested after they were found with a large quantity of stripped electrical cables in their possession.

He commended the Garsfontein SAPS and Sector Two CPF for their contribution to the operation
