Police arrest most wanted suspects

21 July 2021 | From Arrive Alive


Gauteng police have arrested two of the most wanted suspects in the province, who have been terrorising the community of Olievenhoutbosch in Tshwane and the surrounding areas. The suspects who are linked to several cases of murder, house robberies, and business robberies were arrested in Cosmo City, Johannesburg, on Tuesday 20 July 2021, after they were found with unlicensed firearms loaded with ammunition.

They are expected to appear at Pretoria Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 22 July 2021.

During the Ministerial Imbizo that was held in Olievenhoutbosh in May this year, the community complained about the man that is terrorising the community. In response, the Gauteng Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Elias Mawela established the intervention team to hunt down the suspect and all other criminals in the area.

The intervention unit has been working tirelessly to trace the suspects until Tuesday when they received information about the possible hideout of one of the wanted suspects. An intelligent driven operation was launched and the suspect was traced to Cosmos City where he was found and arrested. In his possession police found a firearm that is linked to an Olievenhoutbosch case.

After interviewing him, the suspect took the team to another place where the second suspect jumped through a window. He was chased and arrested. Also in his possession, police found an unlicensed firearm loaded with ammunition.

Acting Provincial Commissioner of the police in Gauteng Major General Tommy Mthombeni applauded the team that worked around the clock to ensure that they arrest criminals that the community has been complaining about.

"This is a breakthrough for the intervention team that has been formed to trace and arrest these most notorious and wanted suspects. These arrests will help us to close most cases of house robberies, business robberies, and murders where these suspects are linked" said Major General Mthombeni.
