EXPLOSIVES were used to blow open a vehicle in a cash heist near Tugela Ferry last Wednesday afternoon.

The cash-in-transit vehicle was said to be travelling from Msinga to Greytown after collecting money at Msinga Mall.

Three security guards, who came under fire from an unknown number of attackers in two vehicles (one reported to be a Fortuner), were injured.

The attackers shot at the security vehicle, causing the driver to lose control and the vehicle to leave the road.

The suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

An ER24 spokesman who attended the scene said: “It is believed the guards sustained their injuries when the vehicle overturned.

“One of the security guards explained that they managed to get out of the vehicle shortly after it came to a standstill.”

They were not injured by the explosives.

The three security guards were transported by ER24 to a hospital in Pietermaritzburg for further medical care.

Local police attended the scene and will conduct an investigation.
