City Law Enforcement officers managed to chase down two suspects in the Bellville CBD and it later emerged they were wanted in connection with a recent ATM bombing in Cape Town.

Two City of Cape Town Law Enforcement officers were conducting foot patrols in the Bellville CBD area when they heard residents screaming nearby.

MEC of Safety and Security Alderman JP Smith said they were charged with the possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

Smith said the officers booked them in at the local police station, they were informed by a detective that the suspects had been involved in a recent ATM bombing in central Cape Town but had managed to evade police officers.

 Smith said these arrests were the result of officers being vigilant while on patrol and their swift action has resulted in two armed and dangerous men being removed from our streets.

“We really commended the officers for the confiscations and arrests” Smith added.
