Five suspects are currently in police custody in relation to the K1.2 million heist at Jacksons airport robbery last November.

According to NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Ben Turi, five suspects have been apprehended; two are dead while three are still at large.

The second suspect was found dead along the Laloki River on New Years’ day.

It is alleged he had gone missing on the Wednesday (The week leading up to New Year) and found days later in the river by a local reservist.

Turi says an officer has also been arrested and the matter is already in court for hearing.

He adds that investigations will continue and police are on the lookout to apprehend all the suspects.
