Three (3) suspects arrested for business robbery.


Bethal: Police in Bethal arrested three suspects including a woman for business robbery on Thursday morning.

The arrest came after the police received a complaint of a business robbery that occurred at a local shop in the central business district on 1 July 2021.

It is alleged that four suspects entered the shop where one of them was wearing a police uniform without a cap and other police uniform accessories, pointed at the victim with the firearm and took the employees to the storeroom and locked them in.

After locking the employees in the storeroom, the suspects then demanded money from the till. They then left the shop with a total amount of six thousand rands.

While the suspects were trying to get away, the community members managed to apprehend the male suspect which was wearing a police uniform and was handed over to the police. The arrested suspect then informed the police about other suspects which were later arrested.

All suspects will appear at Bethal Magistrates Court facing charges of business robbery and the suspect which was found in police uniform will face another charge of impersonating a police official.

Acting Station Commander, Captain Anne Steyn thanked the community for apprehending the suspect and handing him over to the police. She further encouraged members of the community to continue working together with the police in the fight against crime.
