Another day and another cash-in-transit heist. This time, the suspects were filmed while in the act in Mpumalanga.

G4S Cash Solutions told News24 that one of their armoured vehicles had come under attack on Saturday while performing a cash collection service in Emoyeni, Mpumalanga.

Police spokesperson Colonel Brenda Muridili said the incident occurred at 13:30.

She told News24 that an unknown number of suspects had opened fire on the armoured vehicle, bringing it to a standstill.

"The suspects held the security guards at gunpoint and the vehicle was blown up," Muridili said.

The suspects then fled the scene in three vehicles, making off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Footage shows a group of looters descending on the damaged truck.

While Muridili said that none of the looters had been arrested, she condemned their behaviour in no uncertain terms.

"It contaminates the crime scene, which makes it difficult or almost impossible for the crime scene management to recover evidence," she said.
