Police are on the hunt for three suspects involved in a British American Tobacco (BAT) robbery.

The incident occurred on Wednesday 29 July at about 11:00.

Captain Angie Latchman, spokesperson of Wynberg police cluster, says the BAT employee was making a delivery in Gabriel Road, Plumstead when he was allegedly accosted by three unknown men who got into his van and ordered him to hand over the keys.

“The suspects then drove the vehicle and stopped in Whitby Road where they offloaded the cigarettes into a Nissan bearing registration number CA 879282 and fled from the scene, leaving the driver and the panel van behind,” Latchman says.

Immediate investigations at the scene established that the getaway car had been reported stolen in Grassy Park.

Latchman says police later recovered the abandoned getaway car in Bellville.

“The identity of the suspects could not be established as they were wearing balaclavas. The victim did not sustain any injuries during the incident. Police investigations are continuing,” she says
