SAPS’s swift response results in six suspects arrested


Six alleged cash-in-transit robbers have been arrested following a cash-in-transit robbery that occurred on the R555 in Steelpoort on Monday. The cash heist happened at about 18:30.
The Limpopo SAPS said some of the stolen money was recovered while five unlicensed firearms with ammunition and five vehicles have also been seized.
“It is reported that just after 18:30 on Monday, unknown number of suspects robbed security guards of undisclosed amount of money after allegedly using explosives to bomb the armoured vehicle.
“The province immediately implemented the 72-Hour Activation Plan to mobilise Limpopo’s Crime Intelligence, Highway Patrol and Tracking Team, Polokwane Airwing as well as Pretoria and Ekhurhuleni Tactical Response Teams. The team followed up on intelligence which led them to Polokwane, Mokopane and Lebowakgomo where six suspects were arrested at their hideouts, “revealed Col Brenda Muridili.

She said the SAPS confiscated five vehicles, of which four are suspected to have been robbed from their owners while the fifth belongs to one of the suspects.
Five unlicensed firearms and ammunition as well as an undisclosed amount of money were also seized.
The National Commissioner of the South African Police Service, Gen Khehla John Sitole has appreciated the swift implementation of the 72-Hour Activation Plan which resulted in the arrests of the six suspects.
“We will continue to be vigilant and to heighten targeted operations to counter CIT robberies in the build-up to festive season,” said Gen Sitole.

He said the public is encouraged to send tip-offs utilizing the MySAPS App or to contact the SAPS Crime Stop number ‪08600 10111.
