National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrests in a statement adding that a 9mm pistol with a magazine of six rounds was recovered from the suspects.
“Police nabbed one of the suspects after a tip-off from members of the public and he implicated the other accomplices leading to their arrest.
“The suspects mainly targeted service stations and homesteads before robbing the victims of their valuables. So far the gang is linked to 14 cases of robbery in which properties worth US $164 032-00, ZAR 890-00 and ZWL $50000 were stolen,” he said.
