    They were probably red flagged in terms of the Financial Intelligence Act when they bought the car cash.

    So it turns out the security guards are the suspects , i just wonder why it took so long for the cops to figure this out and why it had to become as obvious as a security guard driving a lambo before the cops nailed them? , surely when you investigate you eliminate the obvious suspects first , ones with immediate access and information.

    Five suspects allegedly linked to the R24m OR Tambo Airport heist were arrested over the weekend.

    A highly placed source told News24 that the men were arrested in a joint operation with the Hawks, the provincial tracking team and crime intelligence over Friday and Saturday.

    One of the suspects arrested at a luxurious Centurion estate was in possession of a Lamborghini and a large amount of cash.

    TimesLive reported that the suspect was arrested hours after posting pictures of himself on social media with the new Lamborghini.

    The men are expected to appear in the Kempton Magistrate’s court on Monday.

    The source said police are expected to make further arrests.

    Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi was cagey on revealing details on the arrests but said: “People should be cautioned on what they read on social media where information is not validated.

    “The acting national police commissioner will make an announcement if there have been any developments,” he said.

    The heist saw money stolen from a plane at the airport earlier in March, sources told News24.

    Suspects in a marked police vehicle intercepted the money after a SAA flight landed, News24 reported on March 7. A white Mercedes-Benz is believed to have also been used in the operation.

    Mulaudzi said a high-level investigation, involving all law enforcement agencies, was underway.

    Airports Company South Africa spokesperson Trevor Jones said no shots were fired during the incident and no injuries were reported.

    The money is yet to be recovered.

    Are people seriously that stupid to buy an expensive car cash with no visible means of sustainable income? Lol.

    The really interesting question is whether the car was paid for with SA currency and, if in Rands, how was that quantity changed so quickly. It's unlikely that the dealer would have accepted foreign currency.

    There's a foreign currency black market available. Nigerians and Russians will change money at ridiculous rates in double time. A person I know with legit GBP wanted cash and some Nigerians offered to exchange it to ZAR at 3x the normal rate and that was like 300GBP. This was in December
