Johannesburg - Five Soweto men were arrested after they allegedly robbed a family in Roodepoort, Gauteng police said on Saturday.

Lieutenant Colonel Katlego Mogale said the men fled in the family's Mercedes Benz after robbing them at gunpoint.

"The Gauteng tracking team [then] received information which led them to various houses in Soweto."

Stolen goods, four unlicensed firearms and ammunition were recovered at the houses.

Mogale said three of the firearms were linked to previous cases of crime, while the serial number of the fourth firearm was filed off.

The men face charges of house breaking, possession of suspected stolen goods and possession of firearms and ammunition.

They will appear in the Roodepoort Regional Court on Monday.

    Exactly the same thing happened to my wife and I. Also in Roodepoort. Never heard another thing about it from the police and that was four years ago.
