A R250 000 reward is being offered for information that could lead to the arrest of a group of robbers who stole electronic items worth an estimated R15 million in Kempton Park.

Four to six people entered a business park complex in Sebenza on Sunday through a security gate, and robbed one of the warehouses on the premises, Gauteng police’s Brigadier Neville Malila said.

“Cellphones, iPhones, iPads and other electronic equipment to the value of approximately R15 million were taken.”

Workers on the premises were locked up and no injuries were reported, he said.

The robbers fled in a White Volkswagen Crafter and a white Isuzu truck – in which the stolen items were loaded.

“The registration numbers on both vehicles were checked and found to be false,” Malila said.

He said a third party had also offered a substantial amount of money as a reward for information that may lead to the recovery of the stolen goods or an arrest.
