Two members of a crowbar gang have been nabbed following a wild car chase with police after they were caught red-handed breaking into a house in Kirstenhof.

Cops say the suspects were found in possession of the stolen goods and a pump action shotgun and gas guns.

The two men, both aged 30 years old, are expected to make their first appearance at the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

On Friday, security guards on Lakeside mountainside saw the housebreaking in progress in Norfolk Park in Kirstenhof.

When the guards moved in, the suspects left the house with the stolen goods and fled in a silver VW Polo.

The guards immediately contacted police and the suspects were cornered at the Pick 'n Pay Shopping Centre on Prince George Drive near Marina Da Gama.

Police spokesperson, Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, says the men were found in possession of firearms.

“Two men, both aged 30 years old, will appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court for being in possession of firearms and gas guns. They were later linked to a Kirstenhof housebreaking where crowbars were used,” she says.

Last month police arrested six crowbar gang suspects who were caught red-handed in two separate incidents.

In the first incident, four men were nabbed after allegedly breaking into a house in Fink Street, Bridgetown.

In their haste to get away, the men crashed their vehicle, a Toyota Etios, along Robert Sobukwe Drive, opposite Charlesville.

They were found in possession of a flat-screen TV and a laptop.

In a second incident on the same day, two skelms were busted in Bayview, Strandfontein, after they were spotted fleeing a house they had just burgled.
