Durban - Five people were arrested in connection with a farm robbery in Bergville, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Friday.
They allegedly robbed an elderly couple of money and weapons, Colonel Jay Naicker said.
“The couple were tied (up) with cable ties and the suspects fled taking the farmer's two shotguns, two revolvers, and an undisclosed amount of cash,” Naicker said.
The first man was arrested on Wednesday in Upper Tugela and another, believed to be the mastermind, in Pietermaritzburg on Thursday.

During the arrests the money and weapons stolen during the robbery were recovered.
