Zeerust/ Rustenburg – Four armed men who were arrested for allegedly robbing two victims inside a bank in Zeerust on 6 April 2022 now have to answer for their crimes. 

The 8 April 2022 issue of Platinum Weekly reported on the suspects arrest along the N4 highway just outside Rustenburg – less than an hour after the robbery had been reported.   

This was after police officers from the Rustenburg Highway Patrol unit pulled over a suspicious-looking black Mercedes Benz. 

Said police spokesperson colonel Adéle Myburgh: “The four suspects were arrested after they failed to give account for a firearm and an undisclosed amount of cash found in their possession. The victims in Zeerust were about to deposit money when one of the suspects pointed a firearm at them.”

The suspects’ information was communicated to the police by security officers who managed to identify the get-away vehicle they had used.

Anoch Lebeloane (46), Amogelang Mokhuku (29), Ofentse Peter Dekweli (29) and Zack Francisco Sithole (26) made their second appearance before the Swartruggens Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 12 April.
