Johannesburg MMC for public safety Michael Sun said two of them were out on parole for serious crimes and a third was previously sentenced to 20 years behind bars for armed robbery.
The third suspect was out on bail pending an appeal against his sentence.
"All three suspects had some sort of serious criminal record," Sun told our sister publication TimesLIVE on Tuesday.
The trio was arrested in a joint operation by the metro police's K9 unit, the Hawks, Bad Boyz Security, the SA police and Tracker at the weekend.
