“The CCTV footage was then viewed by the bank’s off-site monitoring company who relayed a description of the suspect to police. Cameras show the suspect running inside‚ grabbing a computer screen and fleeing.
“The outside cameras showed the man running into a nearby side street.”
Naidu said the suspect was found walking in Middle Street‚ around the corner‚ within an hour of the burglary.
“His hands were cut and the computer monitor was under his arm. He did not attempt to run when he realised he was caught.”
The suspect is expected to appear in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court on a charge of burglary on Friday.
