Three people, including a post office employee, have been arrested in connection with the robbery of the Van Dyk Post Office in Boksburg, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.

"[Police] followed up information about suspects who allegedly robbed the Van Dyk Post Office in the morning of 31 December," Captain Kay Makhubela said in a statement.

Two people were subsequently arrested in Vosloorus and Leondale respectively, and cash, believed to be the money taken during the robbery, was recovered as well.

It was not clear how much money was stolen. 

"A woman who worked at the post office was also arrested as she was the one who allegedly gave the money to her boyfriend," added Makhubela.

All three are due in court shortly.
