Police officers from various law-enforcement agencies came out in their numbers to search the Magalies mountain range for pieces of evidence last week. Five people have been arrested in connection with the recent attacks and a murder that took place in the area of Magalies mountain range and the R80 Mabopane highway. A police operation led to the arrrests.

 

An intelligence-driven operation led police to the suspects’ hideout in Marabastad where three people were traced and arrested,” police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters said, adding the others were already in police custody after they were arrested for two cases in Hercules.

 

These arrests emanate from the urgent intervention by the SAPS after Major-General Hilda Mohajane had, this week, assured the victims and the public in general that police would heighten visibility and intensify crime prevention operations in the area policed by Hercules and Akasia police stations.” Peters said the centralisation of related dockets from Hercules and Akasia to district level was followed by the meticulous analysis of the modus operandi.

 

Added to that, the co-operation of the victims led to the five suspects being linked to other cases including several cases of armed robbery, kidnapping and murder in September. Investigations continue as police believe that there are more victims,” Peters said.
