Johannesburg- A police captain arrested in connection with a cash-in-transit heist appeared in the Sasolburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, the Hawks said.

Hawks spokesperson Paul Ramaloko said the 39-year-old crime intelligence officer would be held in custody.

The matter was postponed to Thursday, when he would appear with four other people, including a police sergeant.

The men are accused of robbing a cash-in-transit vehicle of at least R3m in Vaalpark, Sasolburg in February.

The Coin Security vehicle was travelling from a depot in Naledi Industrial Park when a Toyota Land Cruiser collided with it side-on at a stop sign.

Two more cars arrived at the scene and three men got out and shot at the security vehicle.

They opened the doors and took the cash.

A security guard was grazed by a bullet in the shooting.

Police later arrested a police sergeant, a driver and two other people.
