Last week, a crime intelligence-driven operation, in conjunction with the Tactical Response Team (TRT) and a task team formed by the provincial commissioner Lt Gen Mondli Zuma, led to the arrest of four men, including a 32-year-old police constable stationed at Bushbuckridge. The constable is facing charges of possession of unlicensed ammunition for various firearms, a teargas canister, empty dockets, a roll of SAPS tape and dagga.
The other three men were charged for possession of three unlicensed firearms and were believed to be involved in numerous business robberies that took place in and around Acornhoek, Bushbuckridge, Hazyview and Calcutta.
The suspects appeared before the Mapulaneng Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
