WATCH: Three men busted on Beyers Naudé Drive, police to investigate link to Kia Rio gang

The provincial police are investigating whether three men arrested in Roosevelt Park are members of the infamous Kia Rio gang.

The men were arrested on the afternoon of 2 August on Beyers Naudé Drive near the Preller Drive intersection.

According to Captain Kay Makhubela, spokesperson for the South African Police Service, the car the men were tracked down in before their arrest was a white Kia Rio.

In addition to being in a car matching the description of the car the Kia Rio Gang uses, the men were found in possession of goods presumed to be stolen.

“We are investigating and profiling the suspects to try and link them to various crimes in the area,” Makhubela said.

Although police have not yet confirmed that the three arrested men are indeed part of the Kia Rio Gang, social media posts have emerged congratulating the Linden police on arresting the gang allegedly responsible for numerous house breakings and other crimes in the Linden policing area.

Due to the case possibly becoming high profile if the men are linked to the gang, the matter is being handled by the provincial police instead of the Linden Police Station.

He added that the men will likely appear in the Roodepoort Magistrates’ Court on 4 August.
