Three arrested during business robbery in Kimberley

On Wednesday, 11 April 2018 at about 19:00 three male suspects were caught red handed while busy robbing a bottle store in Kimberley.

The suspects allegedly entered the business premises and tied the hands of the two female employees with cable ties.

The suspects allegedly tried fleeing through the back exit with a substantial amount of money, cigarettes and expensive alcohol.

The employees managed to alert Top Security Services (TSS) who also alerted nearby police. The SAPS Flying Squad and Kimberley SAPS Crime Prevention assisted the security company and arrested the suspects inside the premises.

A black bag containing the alleged robbed goods and a panga used to threaten the employees was also found by police on the scene.

The suspects should be appearing in the Kimberley Magistrates’ Court soon.
