Two armed robbers, Lucky Petros Nkosi (33) and Lucky Khomalo (29), who were arrested by the Hawks in connection with a recent armed robbery and shooting at a farm in Frankfort, remain in police custody as part of an on-going investigation.

Capt. S’fiso Nyakane, provincial Hawks spokesperson, says the duo were arrested in Embalenhle, Secunda, upon discovery of the firearm they stole from a farmer during the armed robbery. He says the gun was found in possession of the suspects.

Nyakane says the duo face charges of attempted murder, housebreaking, robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.

They briefly appeared in the Frankfort Magistrate’s Court this week to apply for bail.
