Security guards held for stealing R1m
Johannesburg - Three SBV security guards were arrested on Sunday in Selby, Johannesburg for stealing R1m from the company, said Gauteng police.
It was alleged that more than four people, aged between 29 and 31, stole the money from the security company and fled to the Free State, said Lieutenant Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou.
Police had received information that they were returning to Johannesburg. They waited for them and arrested the guards at the Grasmere tollgate.
Their homes were searched and R456 000 was recovered, said Ndou.
They will appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.
