Port Alfred Detectives are seeking information on two suspects who robbed a gun store this morning
At about 11am today (Thursday) one male suspect approached a firearm dealer store where the owner’s daughter was alone. He posed as a customer wanting to purchase an item of clothing and left it on the counter. He then walked outside and returned with another male who showed her a firearm and asked her for the keys to the safe.
The men took the keys from the till and opened the safe. They then took a camo bag from the store and put several shotguns, rifles and handguns inside. They then left her in the strongroom and closed it leaving the store on foot. The victim’s cell phone was taken. Different types of ammunition was also taken.
