Steyn also said that several people got out of the vehicles and went into the building. Inside the suspects opened the money boxes and took an undisclosed amount of cash.
While they were walking towards the two get-away vehicles several shots were fired between the security guards and the suspects.”
The suspects fled the scene and are still at large. Nobody sustained any injuries during the incident.
