handcuffsTimesLIVE writes that there's no quick getaway in a town so small that everyone knows everyone, as four suspects now behind bars have discovered.  

The group, aged between 23 and 49, were arrested within hours after the Somerset East post office was robbed at midday on Friday.  Two of the three suspects were arrested as they were crossing the river bank on their way to a hiking spot on the N10 national road.  They were found in possession of three firearms with live ammunition.  Further information led the police to another suspect at Bongweni locality in Cookhouse, who was found in possession of an undisclosed amount of money.  The final arrest took place in Somerset East where one of the Post Office employees was arrested.  All four suspects will appear soon in the Somerset East Magistrate's Court on charges relating to possession of suspected stolen money and possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.
