Every night they would randomly shoot guns in their village.But little did they know that cops were tracing them.
“This prompted a police operation and we searched all the identified houses within Mokgoba village and subsequently the guns were found.
” During arrest five hunting rifles, 30 life rounds, 17 empty carriages, 92 loose projectiles and one welding machine were seized,” said Ngoepe.
Now the three men, aged between 17, 24 and 27, have been arrested and are already believed to be behind farm attacks in Limpopo.
Cops recovered 14 rifles, two pistols , and 318 ammunitions for different calibres.
These firearms were found buried in the yard of one of the suspects’ home.
Preliminary investigations point to the possibility that these suspects might be connected to a series of farm attacks in the area and more arrests are expected.
He said the suspects will appear before the Modjadjiskloof Magistrate Court soon on various offences including possession of illegal firearms and ammunition, house robberies, house breakings and theft.
Ngoepe said the suspects may be connected to more cases as their profiling is still unfolding.
