Tactical Intervention Prevents Armed Robbery: Three Suspects Arrested

On Tuesday evening, members of our Special Operation Team were requested to assist SAPS Crime Intelligence Durban MDOC and the Durban North SAPS Crime Prevention Unit on information received of a group of suspects that were planning to commit an Armed Robbery in the Umhlanga area.

During the early hours of the evening, at approximately 18h00, the suspects’ vehicles were spotted parked on Park Lane in the Umhlanga area. Our team members executed a tactical approach, leading to the swift apprehension of three suspects.

Upon searching the suspects, two of the suspects in possession of unlicensed firearms, one of which had been reported stolen in March of the previous year in Brighton Beach.

Upon examination of the vehicles it was discovered that one of the vehicles had been reported stolen from the Pinetown area in November last year. The second vehicle is also suspected to be stolen due to tampered VIN numbers and false license plates.

All three suspects were transported to Durban North SAPS, and will be facing charges of being in possession of an unlicensed firearms, live ammunition and suspected stolen items.

It was later established that one of the suspects is wanted for an attempted CIT robbery in the Richards Bay area earlier in March this year.
