“Ismail appeared briefly in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court on Friday and was remanded in custody. The case was postponed to April 26 where the accused is expected to make his formal bail application,” Mhlongo said.

Last week, three men were arrested in Kimberley, after officers were tipped-off about suspects allegedly planning a robbery.

Police proceeded to a property in Galeshewe, where they recovered SAPS uniforms, SAPS rank insignia, SAPS equipment, and three illegal firearms.

“The trio, aged 29, 34, and 54 were arrested on charges of possession of suspected stolen goods and illegal possession of firearms,” said police spokesperson, Colonel Cherelle Ehlers.
