Philippi-East: Concerted efforts by some community members to assist the police in the fight against crime continue to produce the desired results.

Three robbers were arrested for armed robbery as a result of tip-offs received by the Philippi-East Crime Prevention Unit in Lower Cross Roads last night (Wednesday,21).

The suspects was at a house in Lower Cross Roads and later positively identified and linked to an armed robbery that occurred during the day in the same residential area in the Philippi-East policing precinct.

The trio are currently in detention and will appear in court once charged.

We appealed to residents to keep reporting criminal activities in the area by phoning the Crime Stop number on 08600 10111 or reporting it via the MySAPS app, where they can provide tip-offs anonymously.
