This is according to a statement made by Lieutenant Bongumusa Manqele a Corporate Communications officer at SAPS in Pinetown.
Manqele said that the suspects were arrested for cases including murder, business robbery, common robbery, house breaking, house robbery, carjacking, assault common, assault with intention to cause grievous bodily harm and road traffic offences.
All suspects were charged and they have all appeared in different magistrates courts in the inner and outer west region.
