JOHANNESBURG – Officers have arrested four armed men near Doornfontein after they were caught with two bags of illegal firearms and ammunition.

The men allegedly tried to bribe the officers into turning a blind eye.

City of Johannesburg MMC for Public Safety Michael Sun says the suspects had earlier robbed an electronics store in the Heidelberg area.

He's commended the officers for standing firm against corruption.

“I am really glad to hear that our officers were principled, they were professional, and they rejected these bribes. You can imagine the extent of the seriousness of this crime. I can only imagine how bribes were involved.”
