More arrests expected for KZN cash heists

2011-08-08 13:04

More arrests are expected in connection with a number of cash-in-transit robberies in KwaZulu-Natal.

“Six men were arrested last week in connection with a spate of robberies. We expect more arrests to follow as the investigations progress,” said Police Colonel Jay Naicker.

The men, aged between 29 and 43, were arrested by the Port Shepstone and Durban organised crime units, he said.

They appeared in the Ixopo Magistrates Court today.

They allegedly robbed a cash-in-transit security guard of his firearm and took two boxes containing a substantial amount of cash from the vehicle in a hold-up on July 28, said Naicker.

Police believed they were linked to 19 cash-in-transit robberies and hijackings in KwaZulu-Natal.

“Their arrest is a major breakthrough as we believe that these men were operating all over KwaZulu-Natal,” said Naicker.
