Five arrested for robbing Pinetown pharmacy

FIVE men, who allegedly robbed a pharmacy in Pinetown last Thursday, were traced and arrested in KwaMashu.

According to Pinetown SAPS communications officer, Capt Bongumusa Manqele, a man went to a Pharmacy in Hill Street and posed as a customer.

“When he was supposed to pay for his medication he ordered the pharmacy staff to open the till and give him money. While he was taking the money from the till five more suspects emerged and took medication and cellphones from other staff members.

“An amount of R5000, cellphones and medication were taken. The suspects fled the scene without firing any shots,” said Manqele.

Pinetown police attended the scene and began with their investigation. Investigations led the police to KwaMashu Township where five of the suspects aged between 23 and 36 were arrested on the same day.

The five men are expected to appear in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court soon.
