Western Cape: Flying Squad members patrolling in the City of Cape Town made a quick arrest after receiving information about a business robbery which took place in a cellphone store in Adderley Street, Cape Town. According to the reports, having robbed the shop, the suspects escaped to Khayelitsha where they were tracked down by the police.
Later in the day, (31st 012015) at approximately 13:45, five male suspects were found at a house in Ilitha Park at Khayelitsha where they are alleged to have been busy counting cellphones and IPads they robbed from the shop. During the arrest, police confiscated about 86 new cellphones with IPads in possession of the suspects. The arrested are all males aged between 21 to 37 years old and are currently detained in the police cells pending their appearance in the magistrate court once they are charged.
Police are investigating a case of business robbery and will also look at the possibility that the arrested suspects might be linked to other similar incidents of robberies in the Western Province.
