Live robbery in Johannesburg caught on Google Street View

An armed robbery of an ADT patrol vehicle in Junction Road in Johannesburg, Gauteng has been captured on Google Street View.

The Google Street View photos, which were taken in February 2015, show an armed robber pointing a gun at an ADT security guard parked in Junction Road.

In line with Google’s Street View policies, the licence plate of the robbers’ BMW and the branding of the ADT patrol vehicle are blurred out.

Theunis Kotze, a general manager at ADT, told MyBroadband that the incident was an opportunistic crime where an ADT officer was held at gunpoint by two criminals.

“No one was injured in the incident. The reaction officer’s weapon was stolen,” said Kotze.

The police along with ADT investigated the incident, but no arrests were made at the time.

Kotze said the Google Street View pictures could assist in furthering the investigation, and will be looked into by the SAPS and ADT.
