Cape Town robbery gang bust
Cape Town - Six men wanted for a string of robberies have been arrested in Nyanga in Cape Town, police said on Thursday.
Police followed leads and found five men in a house on Wednesday, Warrant Officer November Filander said. He said the sixth man was caught on Tuesday.
The men, known as the Avanza Gang, had been on the run since August.
"They committed numerous armed robberies and house robberies in the Khayelitsha and Nyanga areas," Filander said.
"Police found several stolen valuables in the house, including a television set, seven cellphones, a 9mm pistol and a Toyota Avanza that was parked in the yard."
Filander said the vehicle was apparently used as a get-away car during robberies. He called on victims to come forward to identify the robbers.
The men, aged between 20 and 30, were expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrate's Court on Friday.
