Millions of rands have been stolen in a break-in at the FNB Stadium south of the Johannesburg CBD, Gauteng police have said.

"It is alleged that [a stadium employee] had locked money in the walk-in safe following the Justin Bieber concert and left for home last night at about 11pm," Lt-Col Katlego Mogale said today.

This morning, when she reported for duty, she discovered several doors leading to the main safe had been tampered with.

Mogale said the robbers gained entry through a bathroom roof leading to the safe wall and forced it open.

"The suspects then used rope to gain entry from the roof to the safe and removed millions of rands in cash."

Mogale said video footage of the robbery was being applied for and an investigation was underway.
