Pretoria - Ten gang members were arrested in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria after being found with stolen goods of more than R80 000 and a firearm, police said on Tuesday.

The nine men and a woman were caught when police went into the area hunting for men who had stolen shoes, said Warrant Officer Annerie Robinson.

"We raided seven houses and searched them. We discovered different gadgets including televisions, computers, cellphones and speakers," she said.

Police also found a firearm which they believe had been used in several armed robberies committed around the area, said Robinson.

She said there had been rampant armed robberies around the area and the gang members could be linked to the criminal activities.

They are expected to appear in the Pretoria North Magistrate's court on Wednesday.
