Supermarket robbed

2011-10-12 09:30

A Ventersburg supermarket security guard stole R11 000 in cash to buy himself a car, Free State police said today.

“The CCTV was monitored and he appeared taking the money on the monitor,” Warrant Officer Malebo Khosana said in a statement.

Khosana said the money was noted missing from a metal cash box placed next to the tills, after Casper Collen Billy Pretorius (21) went on lunch without permission and disappeared.

Pretorius bought a blue Leyland Mini, which was later found abandoned on the side of the road between Welkom and Theunissen.

The incident took place between 2pm and 2.40pm on Sunday October 2.

A warrant of arrest was issued after an investigation.
