Three dead after Kempton Park robbery

2010-09-15 09:25

Three men who allegedly robbed a house in Kempton Park were killed when their vehicle rolled during a high-speed chase with Gauteng police.

A group of men held up a family in the Bredell area and stole their valuables, including a VW Golf, Police Colonel Eugene Opperman said this morning.

They fled in the Golf, abandoned it and continued in a BMW.

Opperman said: “The Benoni Flying Squad picked up the stolen car with the three armed robbers and a chase ensued along the M57 towards Lyttelton. The driver of the BMW could not handle the speed and rolled the car on a straight road.”

All three were killed.

Police found the stolen Golf abandoned near Olifantsfontein. Three stolen pistols and property from the Kempton Park house were recovered.

“We are not looking for any other suspect in this case as we believe the three were the only ones involved,” said Opperman.
