Four suspects who are alleged to be original members of the Rolex gang are expected to appear in the Germiston Magistrates Court on Monday.
The notorious gang is well known for their high-end jewellery heists and other robbery crimes in Johannesburg for so many years. The four suspects were arrested in Bedfordview last week.
The arrest came after a lengthy and thorough operation carried out by the police at The Nicol.
The highly alerted police blocked the scene of the arrest. During the arrest, two vehicles and two firearms were seized by the Specific Crimes Unit in Gauteng.
One of the confiscated vehicles was used to target victims and another was hijacked earlier this month.
The police spokesperson, Kay Makhubele said;
“The four suspects arrested for jewellery robbery will be appearing in the Germiston Magistrates Court facing charges of possession of unlicensed firearms and business robberies.”
