Police have arrested six people in connection with a robbery that occurred at a game farm in Tshipise Road, Limpopo two days after Christmas.

During the robbery, five people entered the farmhouse and made off with a Toyota Land Cruiser, 11 firearms, a laptop, South African rands, US dollars, British pounds and other valuables, Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said. 

On Wednesday night, the investigation led police to four different parts of the Vhembe district – Makushu village, Musekwa village, Tshituni village and Greater Kuduland farm - where the arrests were made, Mojapelo said.
