Four armed robbers were arrested yesterday morning at around 11:20 following a robbery at a post office in De Doorns.

A fifth suspect succumbed to death when their getaway vehicle overturned in Paarl during a high speed pursuit by police.

The suspects held staff at the post office at gunpoint and fled with cash and SASSA cards. The information was broadcasted on police radios and several police vehicles participated in the search for the fleeing suspects.

The suspects were spotted in Paarl, almost 100km away on a road that runs through a difficult mountain pass. While the police were chasing them, their car overturned, and one person was killed. 

Three unlicensed firearms and the stolen cash and cards were seized.

Once charged, the suspects are expected to make their court appearance in De Doorns.
