Officers nab armed robbers in Vincent

By Rising Sun Reporter

Three suspects were arrested in Vincent earlier today (Wednesday, 8 July) for breaking into a store and being in possession of stolen goods, two firearms and ammunition.

An armed response team of security officers from Red Alert responded to a tip-off to a possible robbery in progress. On arrival, at the scene, they noticed the front of the store was closed. Brett Harvey from Red Alert told Eastern Cape Rising Sun that upon further investigation, officers noticed armed suspects.

He added that while the suspects were fleeing the scene into a nearby mall, three suspects were arrested and handed over to the Cambridge police where a case has been opened.  The security officers also managed to stop the suspect's getaway vehicle, which is now impounded.  Police investigations continue.
