Queen Nandi chase leads to arrests

The suspects are believed to be behind several business robberies in the Durban area.

A HIGH-speed chase along Queen Nandi Drive ended with the arrest of two men believed to be part of a gang targeting businesses in Durban. Members of the SAPS K9 Unit were conducting crime prevention duties along Queen Nandi Drive when they spotted a suspicious vehicle with five men inside.

“As police attempted to stop the vehicle nearing Newlands East, the vehicle sped off. Members chased the vehicle and it crashed into another vehicle on Newlands West Drive. Three occupants fled the scene and the other two were arrested.

“The vehicle was searched and four computers were recovered. The arrested suspects will be profiled to see if they might be linked to a number of business robberies and housebreaking cases reported in and around Durban,” said SAPS provincial spokesperson, Lt Nqobile Gwala.

When police traced the number plates of the vehicle used by the suspects, they found it had been hijacked in Chatsworth last month. The arrested suspects, aged 31 and 40, are expected to appear in court soon for possession of suspected stolen property.
