Explosion and gunshots during Gauteng cash in transit heist videos

Another day, another video of a brazen daytime cash-in-transit van heist involving explosives and gunfire. I reckon this one is even more dramatic than last month’s heist in Chamdor, Krugersdorp, although that one did feature a mad scramble for cash in the aftermath. According to TimesLIVE, a cash-in-transit security driver was shot and wounded during the incident below, which occurred in Vanderbijlpark yesterday.

Even more amazing that they can still successfully blow these vans up after all these years. You'd think the industry would have caught up by now.

I don't think the industry cares that much.

How do you propose fighting against explosives?
Make it so if they blow up the safe it incinerates the contents. It'll take an explosion or two before they stop. The companies don't obviously want to implement those other solutions like the one where some chemical hardens around the cash.

They have the incinerators for the handheld boxes. But they aren't using them for the vans.

Probably the insurance is cheaper than the devices in that case. :(

Thanks, didn't know about these things.

Problem with that is they'll go for the drivers. At least this way it's only cash.

They still go for the drivers. A guy I went to primary school with worked for one of these companies. He was ambushed and shot dead.

And in other news

Cele said that at the end of April, while on level 5 there were 107,000 complaints to the police and 118,000 people charged with contravening regulations.

He said that in a month, this number had more than doubled to about 230,000 for contraventions that included liquor and tobacco-related offenses, as well as illegal gatherings amongst others.

Boy Oh boy ..... our priorities in SA ...... all wrong

Two life sentences, 130 years imprisonment for cash-in-transit robber

A man found guilty on 15 charges, including two murders in a cash-in-transit robbery, has been sentenced to two life sentences and a further 130 years imprisonment. Stanford Manoko Diagoane, 40, was sentenced in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Friday for his involvement in a cash-in-transit heist almost four years ago.

On 7 July 2018, the Gauteng Serious Organised Crime Investigation unit, Crime Intelligence and the Limpopo Tracking Team arrested Diagoane for possession of two assault rifles found at a house in Soshanguve. The rifles were linked to a cash-in-transit robbery near Marikana village on Soutpan Road, Hawks spokesperson Captain Ndivhuwo Mulamu said.
