WATCH: Armed 'Rolex Gang' robs motorist in less than 30 seconds

28 September, 07:00 PM

Video footage of an armed robbery at the entrance of a Johannesburg residential complex has emerged.

A resident in a black double cab bakkie can be seen approaching the gated entrance of the Polofields residential complex in Waterfall Estate on Thursday, when a Mercedes sedan enters the next entrance lane. 

Three armed men jump out of the vehicle and accost the driver of the bakkie, before running back to their vehicle.

The entire incident is over in less than 30 seconds.

"It was a follow-home robbery by the Rolex Gang," Craig Sacke, managing director for private security firm ISEC, told News24.

"Even though the original Rolex Gang has been arrested, there is still a huge market for these stolen items, someone is buying them.’"

Sacke explained that ISEC Security used its own resources to try and uncover these types of criminal syndicates, and that all information was handed over to the police.

"We are following up this incident using our network of informants, and other security companies share information via social media as well because this helps everyone in the long-term," Sacke said.

It is still unclear what was actually stolen. No one was harmed during the incident.

The SAPS's Colonel Lungelo Dlamini has confirmed that a case of armed robbery is being investigated.
