A security guard and an alleged accomplice have been arrested following a cash-in-transit (CIT) heist in Zeerust, North West, on Monday.
According to police, guards from ART Security Company were collecting money from Three Star Cash and Carry in Zeerust, when they were attacked by five armed men.
The robbers got away with an undisclosed amount of money.
"The suspects got away in a white BMW, with no registration plates. Follow-up investigations led to the arrest of one guard following questioning by the Hawks' Serious Organised Crime Investigators. The second suspect was arrested this morning in Zeerust," said Hawks spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha.
Ramovha said police were able to recover cash canisters and coins, as well as the BMW used as the getaway car.
Police are still on the lookout for other accomplices.
The two arrested are due to appear in the Zeerust Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
