Three suspects possibly linked to ATM bombings in and around Gauteng have been arrested by SAPS Tactical Response Teams (TRT) this morning in Tembisa, Gauteng.
In their possession, police found dye-stained money, explosives as well as four firearms and ammunition.
Police were following up on intelligence driven information when they identified the first suspect. The 44-year-old South African national was cornered and his vehicle searched. Dye-stained money was found in the boot of his vehicle.
Two more suspects, a Lesotho national aged 35-years of age and a 28-year-old Mozambican national were both arrested at a house in the same area. They too were found with dye-stained money as well as unlicensed firearms and ammunition as well as explosives.
The trio will appear before the Tembisa Magistrates’ Court on Monday on charges of being in possession of dye-stained money, possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition and the illegal possession of explosives.
