    Wasn't there a heist in the same area about 2 months back? On a saturday morning? The whole of atlas was at a stand still that day.

    UPDATE: 4th suspect arrested, 1 rifle confiscated and the police chopper had to make an emergency landing after it had been hit. Chopper en route from PTA to take over. Highway closed between Denver and Benrose, heavy police presence.

    This was very close to the client I was at this morning, the blasts rattled the windows, we couldn't see anything as we didn't have direct line of sight, but they weren't stingy with ammunition. The explosives used must have been pretty potent.

    The other heist 2 or 3 months ago was about 300m from the spot this one happened, also on Atlas road yes.

    What with management thinking intelligence is a license to loot as intelligence budgets aren't properly accounted for. Like Mdluli using the budget to buy cars and hire his girlfriends, family and other cronies as intelligence operatives. I'm sure the rest of them are doing exactly that.

    Other thing is why don't they demolish these delerict hostels, they're just serving as crime dens. Same with squatter camps unfortunately

And they almost always know the score because they collude with dispatchers, managers, etc or even client side info as these are always carefully targeted.
    Huh You are describing some potent movie scene. Action everywhere. Would have like to see some video clips.

    why cant they adapt that locally?

    we now get freight-liners locally here, why not copy one exactly?
