Four burglars were arrested after a hair-raising car chase in Centurion on Friday afternoon.

Lyttelton police spokesperson Captain Dave Miller said the four men robbed a house in the Highveld area.

“The CPF, together with the local security companies were alerted and during their patrol, they spotted the vehicle the suspects used to commit the crime with,” he said.

Miller said a chase ensued when the burglars sped away upon seeing security vehicles.

At times their (burglars) car was dangerously weaving in the traffic.

“The burglars were finally stopped when a security car collided with their vehicle.  An unlicensed firearm was recovered inside the suspects’ vehicle together with other stolen goods,” he said.

Miller said the four were arrested and face charges of house robbery and possession of unlicensed firearm.

“The four are expected to appear in court on Monday.”

“We would like to thank the CPF and the security groups for their combined efforts leading to the arrest of these men. It shows that if we work together as one, we can eliminate crime in our community and stop criminals from operating,” Miller said.

Monitor Net said on their page that the four used a white Toyota Quantum.

“Once again, teamwork and absolute commitment from Security service providers, SA Police service and the Community of Centurion,” Monitor Net said.
