The Hawks in Mpumalanga are searching for a group of men involved in a cash -in- transit heist that happened in Kriel last week.
It is alleged the SBV security guards were loading cash into an auto teller machine when they were suddenly confronted by an unknown number of heavily armed suspects wearing a uniform similar to theirs.
” The crew was forced to open the armoured vehicle vault while being threatened with explosives. One crew member was shot in the process the trolley man was shot twice, but he survived. The suspects fled the scene using a Silver Toyota and an Etios taking along the truck’s keys,” said Mpumalanga Hawks spokesperson Captain Deneo Sekgotodi.
Anyone with information which can lead to the arrest of the suspects are urged to contact the investigating officer Captain Thembi-Nkosi Nkambule on 0823039872 or crime stop on 086001011. Information received will be treated with the strictest confidentially, she said.
