G4S vehicle blown up during cash-in-transit heist near Pretoria

The police are searching for about 15 people suspected to be involved in a cash-in-transit robbery on Paul Kruger Street in Wonderboom, Pretoria, on Tuesday.

National police spokesperson Col Athlenda Mathe said a Mercedes-Benz SUV rammed into the cash van, causing it to stop, at about 7.50am.

Three G4S security officials were forced out of the vehicle and had their service pistols taken.

"The suspects then attacked the cash van with explosives, causing it to explode," Mathe said.

The Mercedes SUV also burst into flames.

N12 cash heist 'strikingly similar' to bombing a day before in Gauteng

It is possible that the same people who carried out a heist in Pretoria on Tuesday struck again near Soweto on Wednesday.

Police said the two heists had striking similarities


“What is concerning is that we are noticing similarities or tactics that were employed in Tuesday's [heist] in Pretoria where a Mercedes-Benz SUV rammed into the cash van causing it to come to a halt. [In] today’s incident, the same transpired where a Mercedes-Benz vehicle rammed into the vehicle, the guards were ordered out, disarmed and both the cash van and the vehicle that rammed into it were bombed,” said Col Athlenda Mathe

I'm pretty sure you can't do that any more because it will place more "strain" on our "medical" "staff".

Suspected CIT robber suffers brutal death in Gauteng explosion

The head of an alleged cash-in-transit robber was blown off when the gang he was part of tried to blast open a van on Wednesday morning near Randfontein, west of Johannesburg, police said.

The incident happened on the R28 Main Reef Road in the Mohlakeng area.

Col Athlenda Mathe said police officers from the Bekkersdal police station came across the heist in progress at about 9am on Wednesday.

“The members were ferrying awaiting-trial prisoners when they were shot at by a group of men sitting behind a white Ford Ranger. Both members [police officers] and the awaiting-trial prisoners were not injured during the ordeal,” said Mathe.

“At the scene, police found that the G4S cash van had already been bombed. Next to the cash van the body of a man, who preliminary investigations suggest was a suspect and that his head may have been blown off during one of the explosions, was also discovered.”

Man with stash of cash, high-end new furniture, arrested for George heist

A cash-in-transit robbery suspect is expected to make a first court appearance for armed robbery on Friday in connection with a robbery that took place on December 21 in George.

The 51-year-old suspect was arrested at a house in Lawaaikamp, George, on Tuesday, where brand new high-end furniture and a large stash of money was found.

Police had received a tip-off about a suspect at a house allegedly in possession of a large amount of cash.

“The investigation has since linked the arrested suspect to an armed robbery that took place on 21 December 2020, where a fresh fruit produce market along Laing Street and a cash van were robbed of an undisclosed amount of money by an unknown number of suspects,” police spokesperson Capt Lloyd Ramovha said
