Efforts to address the scourge of business and house robberies in Philippi East resulted to the arrest of seven suspects this week during a joint operation between the Nyanga Cluster TRIO and Philippi East Detectives. Four suspects were arrested after business robberies were committed in three shops over the weekend in Philippi Plaza. Extensive networking and investigations led to the arrests. During the robberies the suspects went off with undisclosed amount of cash and fifteen watches. Three of the watches were recovered. Two other known suspects are on the run and are linked to all three business robberies. Members were applauded for their successes and diligence in ensuring that those who continue to terrorise community members and businesses are brought to book. The Nyanga Cluster Commander, Major General Dyantyi appreciates the role played by community members of Philippi East in the arrest of these suspects.
