South Africa: Six suspects were nabbed with dangerous weapons outside a business premise in Canelands – KZN this morning (Sunday).
Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) received a tip-off from a member of the public that six males in a red VW Polo were parked outside the business premises. The caller informed the controller on duty that the males were behaving in a suspicious manner.
Given the increase in shootings and armed robberies in the area, Reaction Officers were immediately dispatched to the location.
On arrival at approximately 04:36, Officers interviewed the men, who were unable to provide reasons for their being parked on the driveway. RUSA Members searched the occupants of the vehicle and found one of them in possession of a replica firearm.
An Okapi pocket knife was located on a second individual. The second set of registration plates was also recovered.
The vehicle and exhibits were handed over to Police for further investigation.
