East London police nab two suspected robbers arrested in morning raid

An early morning raid conducted by the SAPS's Crime Intelligence unit and the East London Flying Squad netted two suspects, aged 40 and 44 years old, at Khayelitsha informal settlement near Fort Jackson outside East London on Monday.

"Items recovered from their shack include a 9mm pistol (serial no filed off) with seven rounds of ammunition, a bag containing coins, airtime vouchers and a TV set," described police spokesperson, Captain Mluleki Mbi.

"They are appearing before the Mdantsane magistrates court today facing charges of illegal possession of firearm and ammunition as well possession of suspected stolen property."

Capt Mbi said that initial investigation suggests that they have pending cases and could be linked to more cases.
