Three men held

■ Metro police arrested three men on Friday last week after acting on a tip-off about an armed robbery planned at a Milnerton home. Officers staked out the premises but believe the suspects spotted them and abandoned their plans, said Metro police spokesperson, Zelda Martin. The officers followed the suspects onto the N2 and pulled them over in the vicinity of Jakes Gerwel Drive, in the direction of Somerset West. When they searched the vehicle they found a pistol and five bullets. Three suspects, all aged 35, were arrested on charges of possession of a prohibited firearm.
