Three alleged “Rolex Gang” members were arrested by the police officers in Johannesburg on Sunday.
The arrests were made by the Johannesburg Metro Police Department’s K9 unit, the Hawks, Bad Boyz Security, the police, and Tracker during a joint operation.
“The three suspects were travelling in two different cars, scouting for possible victims around Fourways. They targeted one victim and followed its car,” Johannesburg public safety MMC Michael Sun explained.
During the arrest, the officers seized illegal firearms, ammo, gloves, and fake number plates that had been used by the alleged criminals.
The suspects are expected to appear in court soon.
