Johannesburg - Three people have been arrested in connection with a spate of robberies across the province, Gauteng police said on Thursday.

Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said the three men who had been linked to various crimes committed in Douglasdale, Ivory Park and Sandton were arrested on Thursday.

“One of the suspects is also on parole for an armed robbery case in Wierdabrug,” said Dlamini.

The arrest was made after police traced a cash withdrawal of over R9000 from a stolen credit card.

Through the arrest, police also recovered a stolen Pajero believed to have been hijacked in Midrand.

Another man linked to the alleged crimes was being sought.

The men were expected to appear in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday. - Sapa
