White Mercedes Benz doing the rounds again

An armed robbery occurred earlier this week in Steve Banto Biko Street; the notorious car was seen leaving the scene.

On Tuesday, April 10 at approximately 11:15 an armed robbery occurred at Caramel Park.
The suspects fled the scene in a white Mercedes Benz, they were allegedly heavily armed.

A white Mercedes Benz has been involved in several armed robberies over the last year.

On May 9, 2017 the suspects were involved in an armed robbery in the Central Business District (CBD) in Northey Street.
Mr Richard Nyalulunta was driving his orange WildTrak Ford Ranger down the road. Driving next to him was a white Mercedes Benz with a GP registration number which had three occupants inside.

One of the three suspects started shooting at Nyalulunta and as the first shot was fired, he started to reverse his vehicle to get out of the way, bumping a white Nissan Tiida that was parked in the parking zone in the road, which then bumped the black Volkswagen that was parked behind him.
