An immediate joint patrol was conducted by police personnel and members of the neighbourhood watch leading to the arrest of two men digging and cutting underground cable.

The two suspects, local citizens aged 35 and 39, were taken into to the BSB Central Police Station for investigation.

Several tools and equipment were confiscated as evidence.
