The white Opel Corsa bakkie, they were in turned out to be a stolen vehicle and is suspected to have been involved in a BAT robbery at Sgt Pepper about two weeks ago.
"Kabega Park police members responded to the alert and proceeded to Medi-Cross but they spotted the vehicle driving away," the police said.
"The vehicle headed towards the Westering area. Kabega Park police was assisted by neighbouring stations and units."
Police swammed the area and three suspects were spotted in Diggery Road running through the dense bush.
"Police proceeded to Miranda road, where they spotted the abandoned Opel Corsa bakkie.

A third suspect is still at large.
"Police will also determine if these suspects could be linked to other crimes within the Port Elizabeth area."
