Robbed at gunpoint

Seven armed men robbed the 7Eleven, on the corner of Old Paarl Road and Howard Drive, in Northpine, on Wednesday July 26, at 8.40pm.

They took a Lotto machine and cigarettes as well as cellphones from customers and about R3 000 both from the till and customers, said provincial police spokesperson Sinathi Joni.

The Northpine Neighbourhood Watch said the robbers had all been dressed in blue overalls and had used a black Citi Golf. The robbery had taken less than two minutes.

The robbers are still at large.

Kraaifontein police seized dagga with an estimated street value of R33 500 in Bharu Street, Wallacedene, last week.

Acting on a tip off, police raided the home on Thursday July 27 and found plastic bags containing 216 parcels of dagga, provincial police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said.

A 28-year-old woman was arrested on drug charges and appeared in Kuils River Magistrate’s Court on Monday July 31.
