Cash-in-transit heist: CIT robbery ‘in planning stages’ foiled by SAPS

Police in Johannesburg believe that they have managed to foil a cash-in-transit (CIT) heist before it even took place, with two people arrested after a raid on their Marikana home led to the discovery of three hijacked vehicles and a plot to stage an audacious robbery. 

Cash-in-transit heists have been a frequent scourge on communities across the country in recent years, and luckily a cool, calm and collected driver like Leo Prinsloo wasn’t required to fend off the attackers this time.

Crime stoppers descend on Gauteng home

South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha said in a statement on Tuesday 11 May that the raid was conducted by the Rustenburg Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation team, who were assisted by the Special Task Force, Crime Intelligence, Johannesburg Metro Police and Gauteng Flying Squad. 

He said that these teams followed up on information of the possible cash-in-transit robbery that was “still at a planning stage”.

“The team descended at a house in Teme section, Marikana on the afternoon of Monday, 10 May 2021. Three vehicles, two Audis and a Jeep that were confirmed as hijacked earlier this year in Douglasdale and Wierdabrug policing precincts respectively were recovered,” he said.

The owner of the house and his wife were immediately arrested for possession of stolen property and conspiracy to commit crime, with the investigating officers concluding that the vehicles were set to be used in an upcoming robbery. 

“Investigation revealed that the recovered vehicles were allegedly brought to the house which was assigned to be used as a safe house once the robbery has taken place. Further details of other implicated suspects are being followed up and they should be arrested soon,” said Ramovha. 

The arrested suspects aged 41 and 29-years-old are expected to appear in the Tlhabane Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday 12 May.
