Johannesburg - Mpumalanga police were on Thursday searching for three men who allegedly bombed and robbed a safe at the Petroport Steers in Dwarsfontein near Delmas.

"A case of business robbery has been opened and is under investigation," said police spokesperson Gerald Sedibe.

The three men allegedly entered the Steers Petroport shop on Wednesday night and held the cashiers at gunpoint.

"They then went to the safe and blasted it twice," said Sedibe.

"After that, they ordered the cashiers to help them get the safe off the wall and carry it to their vehicle which was parked at the main entrance."

The group fled with an undisclosed amount of cash in a white Toyota Corolla.

No one was injured and no shots were fired.
