Cash-in-transit heists suspects nabbed in Moteti

MOUTSE – Two cash-in-transit heist suspects were on Friday morning at about 03:00 arrested at a house in Moteti C section outside Groblersdal.

Lt Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe. Limpopo Provincial Police Spokesperson said the suspects, including a highly wanted fugitive, were arrested during an intelligence led tactical joint operation.

Ngoepe said both suspects were positively linked to cash-in-transit robberies that occurred in recent months in Mankweng, Seshego, Polokwane, Tzaneen and Motetema policing areas.

He said the suspects have also been linked to the attempted cash-in-transit robbery in the Rakgoadi policing area outside Marble Hall on Thursday morning.

“During the arrest an R4 assault rifle with six magazines and 66 ammunition, a 9mm firearm, more than R200 000 cash, an Audi A4, Tshwane Metro police uniforms  and a police reflector and a jacket were confiscated. Some of the recovered money notes were damaged and is believed to part of the money robbed during a number of cash-in-transit heists in the province,” informed Ngoepe.

He said more arrests were still expected and the arrested suspects, aged 25 and 32 would soon appear before the Moutse Magistrates Court on charges of possession of unlicensed firearms, ammunitions and suspected stolen properties.

“Later they would appear before different magistrates’ courts throughout the province for cash-in-transit heist robberies,” added Ngoepe.

Police said the arrest was a major breakthrough last week following the arrest of seven suspects who were terrorizing residents and businesses in Polokwane, Mankewng, Tzaneen and Thohoyandou areas where a number of petrol stations were robbed and drop-in safes blown up.
