    Suspected cash-in-transit robbers nabbed before striking again

    The Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) Tactical Unit members together with Crime Intelligence and other law enforcement officers arrested four heavily armed suspects linked with cross pavement (cash-in-transit) robberies.

    On Thursday, 30 June, the TMPD tactical members with crime intelligence and other law enforcement officers responded to information received about suspects who were planning a cross pavement robbery.

    A cross pavement robbery is an incident where money is intercepted as it is carried to or loaded on a stationary armoured vehicle or as it is offloaded from a stationary armoured vehicle.


    According to TMPD, the house of the suspects was identified in Atteridgeville. A C-class Mercedes Benz vehicle was seen leaving the house before the team arrived.

    “The officers tactically approached the house and found four suspects.
    Inside the house, two military signal jammers were recovered, one firearm and sets of number plates were also recovered,”

    part of the statement read.

    A Suzuki swift vehicle with tampered VIN numbers was also recovered.

    “The four suspects were arrested for conspiracy to commit robbery, possession of unlicensed firearm and ammunition and possession of suspected stolen vehicle.

    Two of the suspects were linked to previous cases of pavement robberies in Tshwane,” TMPD further detailed.
