NORTH WEST – Members of the Hawk’s Serious Organised Crime Investigation in Mahikeng recovered firearms alleged to have been used during a robbery on 07 March 2023 at Mokgola village where two suspects were arrested by members of Detective Services.

On 14 March 2023 members of the Hawks followed up on information regarding the whereabouts of firearms, which led the team to search a vehicle belonging to one of the accused. During the search, two firearms, one pellet gun, cash and a smart phone were found hidden in the panel cover of the tailgate door.

The suspects who are already facing charges of business robbery will make their first appearance before Zeerust Magistrate’s Court on 15 March 2023, where they will be facing additional charges of possession of unlicensed firearms.
