15 dangerous suspects arrested for violent crimes in KZN in one day

Yesterday, police in KwaZulu-Natal arrested 15 suspects for various violent crimes in different parts of the province. All 15 suspects are due to appear at various courts today facing criminal charges. Yesterday at 11.30, police officers from the Umhlali K9 Unit responded to a robbery at a business premises in Nsuze. The suspects fled into the bushes before the police officers arrived at the scene. The victim was able to provide police officers with a description of the suspects and pointed out the direction in which they fled with the cash. Police manged to recover the cash in the bushes and following further investigation, four suspects were traced and arrested. The suspects were positively identified by the victim and they were charged with armed robbery.
Yesterday at 12.30, a group of armed suspects entered a jewellery store at a mall in Phoenix and robbed the business of jewellery, wrist watches and cash before they fled the scene in their two getaway vehicles. Police were alerted and spotted one of the vehicles and gave chase. Whilst on the M25 highway near KwaMashu, it is alleged that the suspects opened fire at police officers. Following a shootout, six suspects were arrested including two who were wounded. The wounded suspects were taken to hospital under police guard. Some of items taken from the business were recovered from the suspects. The suspects were charged for armed robbery and attempted. A manhunt is underway for those suspects that escaped.
In Mountain Rise near Pietermaritzburg at 18:00, police officers from the K9 Unit responded reports of a suspicious vehicle on Lincoln Road. When police officers approached the vehicle, the suspects sped off and a chase ensued. The suspects drove into a cul de sac and they attempted to flee from their vehicle. The suspects opened fire at police officers and in the ensuing gun battle four suspects were shot and wounded. A fifth suspect was caught by a police dog as he attempted to flee. All five suspects were detained and four Firearms were seized. All five suspects will appear in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrates Court today.
We are also appealing to members of the community not to open false case as it is a crime to do so. A lot of police resources are wasted while there are other serious cases that could have been attended to. Yesterday, a man and a women who opened a false robbery case at Tongaat were arrested after an investigation by police. It is alleged that they reported to police that two suspects approached them while they were at work at a bar in Tongaat. They claimed that they were robbed of cash and alcohol at gunpoint. A case of armed robbery was opened and after an initial investigation on the crime scene by police it became apparent that these allegations were false. Cash was seized from the duo and they were charged with defeating the ends of justice.
