Armed robbery suspects nabbed in uMhlanga

THREE men who were wanted in connection with an armed robbery were arrested yesterday in uMhlanga.

According to Blue Security the arrest came after their armed response officers, members of the community and police joined forces. Blue Security operations director Brian Jackson said armed response officers spotted the wanted vehicle with three occupants driving through uMhlanga with a community project leader in pursuit at around 10.40am.

“Blue Security armed response officers and the community project leader caught up with the vehicle in Forest Drive where they questioned the three men regarding ownership of the vehicle and asked for a driver’s licence. One of the suspects claimed that his cousin owned the vehicle and the suspects then changed places in the car in a bid to try and create some confusion. The driver could not produce a driver’s licence,” Jackson said.

“The suspects were arrested and handed over to the Durban North SAPS at the scene. Police then took the suspects back to the scene where an armed robbery took place at a business premises in La Lucia earlier this month. Police viewed CCTV camera footage at the business premises before taking them back to the police station for processing. We advise businesses to fit CCTV surveillance cameras at their premises if they do not already have this additional layer of security, which acts both as a deterrent and an aid to police in their crime investigations,” Jackson said.
