One of three suspects in the robbery at the Total Pionierspark fuel station in Windhoek last week, handed himself over to the police on Monday.

The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) said in a media statement issued on Monday that the suspect surrendered at about 09h30.

Chief Inspector Kaunapawa Shikwambi of NamPol's Media Relations Division, said the suspect (name known to Nampa) surrendered to the Serious Crime Sub-Division in Windhoek in the presence of his lawyer.

"Investigations and interrogation are currently underway and the suspect is expected to appear before court by Wednesday," said Shikwambi.

The police then appealed to the other two suspects to follow suit and surrender, because if they don't the Namibian Police Force will continue to hunt them.

The trio last Monday allegedly robbed the fuel station of N.dollars 170 000 in an armed robbery. Although a few shots were fired between the suspects and the owner of the service station no one was injured.

The police earlier said that all three suspects were out on bail for previous crimes ranging from house breaking to armed robbery. (NAMPA) FL/ND/AS
