Nice going. I only hope for at least a 50% bad guy mortality rate next time. Don't ask me how they're going to do 5.5. All I have to add. :sneaky:

Guard shot, others injured in two cash-in-transit heists in Pretoria


Two cash heists were reported in the Pretoria area alone on Friday morning, say Gauteng police. In the first, a security guard was shot and wounded in Pretoria West. Col Brenda Muridili said the guard had just collected cash at a store in the Kit Kat Shopping Centre.

“On his way to the cash van, he was approached by a man who shot him in the right leg and robbed him of an undisclosed amount of money,” said Muridili. “The suspect and his accomplices fled the scene in a white SUV,” said Muridili. Some reports said that the getaway vehicle was an ambulance but Muridili said that this was not so. A second heist was reported on the N1 near the Hammanskraal area.
