Seven suspected armed robbers arrested in connection with business robberies in Trompsburg are expected to appear in the Edenburg Magistrate’s Court on 30 November.

Two of the accused, whose identities are withheld, appeared in the Edenburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday (13/11).

Const. Peter Kareli, provincial police spokesperson, says that following the arrest of two suspected armed robbers at separate places on Saturday (11/11) in Trompsburg, the investigation linked them with five arrested in September.

Kareli says the suspects were arrested in connection with a spate of armed robberies of tuckshops in Trompsburg.

The cases were postponed to 30 November, when all seven suspects, aged from 25 to 30, will appear in connection with cases of armed robbery, attempted murder and possession of unlicensed firearms.
