Four alleged robbers arrested in Claremont on Saturday

Members of the Western Cape Flying Squad and Law Enforcement responded to a warning about a suspicious black Toyota Yaris that may have been equipped with cloned registration plates, which led to a high-speed pursuit in Claremont that resulted in the arrest.

The police spokesperson, Malcolm Pojie, stated that the members saw the automobile and that the individual inside turned out to be the getaway car's driver.

“As the members were about to approach the vehicle, three men came running out of a store and boarded the vehicle, the Yaris, which immediately sped off. A high-speed chase ensued and upon searching the vehicle, members found three firearms, clothing items, bedding, cellphones and a substantial amount of cash. The four were arrested and detained at the Claremont police holding cells,” Malcolm Pojie said.

He added that further investigation confirmed the suspects had robbed a shop, at gunpoint, in Claremont.

The suspects will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
