Johannesburg - The Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) have arrested three suspects believed to be members of the notorious ‘Rolex Gang’ in Fourways.
The Rolex Gang is known for targeting individuals wearing Rolex watches and subsequently robbing them. This infamous gang largely operates in the northern suburbs.
It is alleged that the suspects were arrested on Sunday following a joint operation by the JMPD’s K9 unit, the Hawks, Bad Boyz Security, SAPS and Tracker, a car tracking company.
A task team was set up and activated after information was received that the gang would commit crime in Sandton on Sunday.
According to reports, JMPD spokesperson Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said law enforcement officers were strategically deployed to keep an eye on the alleged suspects.
