Police stand guard over the seven suspects that were arrested along the banks of the Woodstock Dam in Bergville.

Seven armed men were arrested after a high-speed chase along the muddy banks of the Woodstock Dam, near the Banana Bridge in the Dukaza area of Bergville on Wednesday.

Police officers were called in from Pie­termaritzburg, Winterton, Bergville and Ladysmith after armed men had robbed the Upper Tugela Post Office.

Led by Lieutenant Asheena Ramlagan, the police tracked the men down to the Dukaza area, where they were visiting a traditional healer to ask him to perform “a prayer” of protection against the police so they would not be arrested.
