The joint operation team included officers of the Special Operations Response Team, Special Branch, Anti-Kidnapping Unit, Inter-Agency Task Force and the Northern Division Task Force.


Speaking via telephone on the TV6 Morning Edition today, Commissioner Griffith said all operational and intelligence units sprung into action on hearing the report.


During the operation two suspects were held.


One of them was said to be wearing a police jacket although he is not a police officer while the other was found wearing camoflage gear.
