Three wanted for armed robbery


Three suspects are wanted for an armed robbery at the home of a Florida Glen family.

This past Monday (7 March) the Florida Police Visible Policing Unit received a radio call informing them that an armed robbery had occurred in Lange Avenue. On their arrival the complainant explained to police how three armed men confronted him outside his home at gunpoint. They ordered him to the main bedroom in the house and took his firearm.

Thereafter the suspects tied up the complainant, his wife, his son-in-law and a friend. They then ransacked the house and took among other items laptops, cellphones, a tablet, jewellery, an identity document, a passport, and driver’s and firearm licences.

The suspects are still at large and police are investigating the incident.
