This morning, while collecting money at a garage in Orange Street, in Gardens, three security officials were approached by three armed. A suspect ordered one of the guards to hand over the cash box containing an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then took the box and fled on foot. The two remaining suspects took an official firearm from one of the guards and also fled on foot.
Police spokesperson Captain Randall Stoffels says that the cash-in-transit heist is under investigation.
“We have launched a massive search for the three suspects who were involved in the cash-in-transit at the Engen Garage in Gardens this morning. At this stage, no one has been arrested as yet,” said Stoffels.
Police appeal to anyone with information to contact Cape Town Central Operational room on (021) 467 8001/2.
