Six Armed Robbers Arrested After Shootout With Police

Two members of the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) and a member of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) were part of a gang of six suspected robbers arrested in Masvingo after a shootout with detectives, reported The Mirror.

When asked for a comment by the publication, ZNA deputy spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Alex Zuva referred questions to ZRP spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who said he was not in a position to comment at the material time.

The suspects were arrested on Tuesday morning following a gun battle with officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) near Gokomere Mission along the Masvingo-Harare highway.

The six were reportedly part of an eight-man gang that had stolen gold ore in Mashava before fleeing using their getaway vehicle.

The suspects were involved in a road traffic accident when their Silver Toyota Wish vehicle collided head-on with a haulage truck moving towards Masvingo City.

Two of the suspects fled while the other six were arrested.
