Three suspects have now been arrested in Gauteng and Mpumalanga - bringing the total number of syndicate members in police custody to four.

During their arrests police recovered a firearm and a Ford Ranger - which has been traced back to a hijacking in January in Mooinooi, North West.

The suspects are set to appear in court soon, but police are calling on anyone with information to come forward as the search for the remaining suspects continues.
