Well, what do you know?
OR Tambo International Airport was the starting point for a spate of nasty crimes recently, travellers and locals followed home after touching down (HERE).
After a concerted effort by police, it seems four of the culprits have been nabbed. eNCA reports:
The arrests were made on Thursday night following a crime intelligence-driven operation, police said in a statement on Friday.
Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Katlego Mogale said: “During patrols on the R24 and R21, a suspicious vehicle was identified and followed at about 8pm. When the [crime-fighting] members attempted to stop the vehicle, the occupants fired on them.
“The members returned fire and disabled the vehicle, causing it to come to a halt on the R21 North outside the airport, just before the Atlas Road off-ramp.
Four suspects were arrested and three unlicensed firearms were recovered,” he said.
Credit where it’s due – top effort SAPS.
The suspects will now appear in the Kempton Park Magistrate’s Court on a number of charges, including attempted murder and possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.
