19 October, 11:37 AM

Police are searching for a group of men who robbed a jewellery store at i'langa Mall in Nelspruit on Monday.

CCTV footage shows a group of armed men approaching the store and apprehending the security guard stationed outside.

The men return as a cloud of smoke fills the jewellery store inside. Moments later, two men – one in a police uniform – exit and talk to the armed men.

Mpumalanga police spokesperson Colonel Mtsholi Bhembe said: "Two men who were wearing police uniform entered the shop and approached a security guard who was on duty.

"The guard became suspicious about the duo and suddenly a group of armed men emerged and held the staff at gunpoint," he said.

The group robbed the store of an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene in a white Ford Ranger.

No arrests have been made and a case of business robbery and impersonation of a police officer has been opened.

Police have requested anyone with information on the robbery to contact Sergeant Alex Marika on 082 464 5721/013 759 1432.
