Last Friday evening, five suspects, three armed with firearms, were involved in a business armed robbery in the Orange Grove area. Various valuables were taken and the suspects proceeded to leave in an unknown direction in a white and blue coloured Toyota HiAce. One of the victims managed to alert CAP’s Command Centre and Tactical Units were immediately dispatched to the scene.
Shortly after the incident, a patrolling Tactical Unit spotted the suspect vehicle driving on Northfield Avenue and a chase ensued. The vehicle was eventually pulled over on Modderfontein Road and the suspects were detained. Police were dispatched to the scene and arrested the suspects on arrival. The suspect’s firearms and the stolen valuables were also recovered inside the suspect vehicle.
Well done to all involved!
