A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Limpopo security guard earlier this month.
The security guard was killed during a cash-in-transit heist in Burgersfort on 1 April.
The Hawks arrested the man on Thursday, said police spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke.
"On 1 April 2021, a security guard who had just collected money from the shop in Burgersfort was on his way to the company vehicle when he was allegedly confronted by three armed men, who shot him dead and made off with over R400 000," Maluleke said.
A case of murder and armed robbery was opened and referred to the Hawks' Serious Organised Crime Investigation unit for investigation.
"The Hawks' intensive investigation led to the arrest of the suspect at his hideout in the Burgersfort area. The suspect was arrested in the early hours of [Thursday] morning by the Hawks' Serious Organised Crime Investigation unit and Tactical Response Team members," Maluleke said.
The search for the other robbers was continuing, Maluleke added.
The 34-year-old man is expected to appear in the Burgersfort Magistrate's Court on Friday on murder and armed robbery charges.
