Johannesburg - Four would-be cash-in-transit robbers were killed in Vuwani, near Levubu, in Limpopo on Monday, police said.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said it was believed the men were trying to rob a Coin security vehicle on Monday around 11:00.

"Patrolling police saw the Coin security vehicle standing next to the road with men attempting to open the back doors."

He said the men opened fire when they saw the police approaching.

"The four men were shot dead in an ensuing shoot-out with the police."

Mulaudzi said the policemen and security guards were not harmed.

The robbers were using a grey BMW with false registration numbers.

"Police seized four handguns, one police reflector jacket, a blue light, and a five-litre container filled with petrol," he said.

    Congrats to the police, they deserve a braai after a job well done.

    Ok.so the police do their job once,and we praise them like hero's. Sure,they did their job and stopped them.but thats what they're supposed to do,its their job!?! 1 newspaper article of one incident where the guys do their job,compared to the daily bullsh*t everyone has to deal with SAPS NOT doing their job and letting this countries crime rate sky rocket. Yeah well done guys,you stopped some bank robbers.now if you would continue to dispose of the other million crooks,it would be greatly appreciated =/

      Matthew - 2012-05-29 12:04

      Sure i sound negative,but thats sadly the real-life situation of the country we live in.But well done boys,you did good by your fellow south african people!
