Trio arrested for being in possession of petrol bombs in Delft

The Western Cape police arrested three suspects, aged between 28 and 32, in Delft on Monday morning, whereby they confiscated 13 petrol bombs. The police alleges that the trio have strong links to the taxi industry.

Brigadier Novela Potelwa said officers from the province’s Flying Squad were on route patrol just before 11a.m, and spotted a Toyota Quantum minibus and a sedan vehicle in pursuit of a furniture delivery vehicle that was driving on Delft Main Road and whose driver, says Potelwa, seemed to be in distress.

‘’The police members promptly responded while calling for backup. Once they pulled over the 15-seater vehicle and the sedan, they searched the vehicles. Thirteen petrol bombs were discovered and the suspects were subsequently apprehended. The suspects between the are alleged to have strong links to the taxi industry and expected to appear in court as soon as they are charged in terms of the explosives act.’’

‘’Meanwhile the furniture delivery vehicle was escorted out of the area by the police members. Integrated police contingents comprising SAPS members, the City of Cape Town’s law enforcement officials and traffic services continue to maintain a strong presence at identified hotspots while the taxi strike is being monitored,’’ added Brigadier Novela Potelwa
