G4S Cash Solutions is offering a reward of up to R1 million for credible, useful information leading to the arrest, prosecution and conviction of the people who shot and killed a G4S security guard on Monday.

According to a statement released by the group, a G4S security guard was shot and killed on Monday evening, during a cash in transit attack at Engen Middlevlei filling station on the R28 in Randfontein, Gauteng.

Renso Smit, regional cluster director for G4S Southern Africa, said that they are devastated at the tragic and senseless loss.

“We have conveyed our deepest condolences and support to the family of the deceased. We are making it a priority to ensure these criminals are held to account,” said Smit.

Smit added that one of the perpetrators was caught on camera and has urged anyone with information to contact Ray Barlow on 083 324 3460, or Shaun Maleo on 083 750 4042 from G4S Cash Solutions.

Meanwhile, Smit added that G4S wrote to the Minister of Police and the National Police Commissioner, to urgently convene a meeting with all stakeholders to address the continuing escalation of violence in cash-in-transit (CIT) attacks, in April.

“Cash-in-transit (CIT) and cross-pavement attacks are becoming more violent in nature. This is deeply concerning because it puts the lives of our people in danger. There are not enough prosecutions and convictions to deter these criminals, who are operating with impunity.

“We are therefore calling on Crime Intelligence, SAPS, the Hawks, the National Prosecuting Authority and the Ministers who lead them, to prioritise CIT crime and to re-establish and bolster the National CIT Task Team as a matter of urgency,” says Smit.
