Three suspects, two males and one female suspect are due to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate court on Monday.
“This arrest came as a result of a thorough investigation by Lasndowne police,” says police spokesperson captain Eliot Sinyangana.
Sinyangana added that on the 18th, October 2007 at about 19:30 two males as well as one female went to a certain address, in Taronga road, Crawford and held the owner of the house at gunpoint.
“The suspects robbed him of his licensed firearm taken out of his safe as well as undisclosed amount of money,” says Sinyangana.
He added that before the suspect left the victims home they tied him and his son and then left the house.
Sinyangana says it is unknown with what they fled the scene after leaving the house.
“Whilst police were investigating this case a report of burglary was made on the 24, October 2007,” says Sinyangana.
