THE KwaDukuza SAPS are appealing to members of the public to come forward with information that may lead to the arrest and prosecution of suspects following an armed robbery that took place at a retail store in the KwaDukuza CBD on Sunday.

KwaDukuza SAPS spokesperson, warrant officer Johannes Khoza said the robbery occurred at around 10am when four armed suspects entered the store and demanded cellphones before they fled the scene.

“There were six suspects in total, two of them were pretending to be customers, they are all unknown to the complainant. Samsung J1s and J7s were stolen. No one sustained injuries during the robbery. The police are investigating a case of business robbery,” Khoza said. Anyone with information is urged to contact the KwaDukuza SAPS on 032 551 8200.

In a separate incident, three suspects were arrested in Zamani Township, Darnall, last Thursday for being in possession of unlicensed firearms.

Khoza said members of the KwaDukuza Crime Prevention Unit were patrolling the area at around 5:30pm when they spotted the suspects they believed were smoking an illegal substance.

“The suspects were outside a house which the police then entered to conduct a search. During the search, the police found two 303 pistols, one had a serial number and the other’s serial number had been erased, and a shotgun barrel along with office chairs,” he said.

Khoza said one of the suspects revealed that they had sold one computer printer and one sandwich toaster to a resident in the area whose house was identified by the suspect.

“They were all found in the same room at Zamani Township and so they were arrested for violating section 36 and for being in possession of an unlicensed firearm. All three suspects appeared in the KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court on Monday,” he said.

Khoza said on the same day, an intelligence driven operation by SAPS in the Ngudwini area, under the Sundumbili police patrol area, resulted with the arrest of four suspects who were found to be in possession of six unlicensed firearms and eight bags of 20kg each of marijuana.
