Car guard’s big tip from store robbers

2014-06-20 00:00

KROONSTAD — A car guard got a R12 tip yesterday — from three men who had just robbed a clothing store.

It was only after the men left that Kotie Booysen (59) found out who the generous men were.

Booysen was at her post at 9 am when the men parked a black Dodge.

One gave her R5 then, and when they returned, she got another R7.

“The men loaded a cardboard box and a big bag into the car,” she said.

Inside the store, two of the men held up staff and a customer with weapons, while another guarded the door. They stole cellphones, clothes and shoes, police said.
