Another day, another video of a brazen daytime cash-in-transit van heist involving explosives and gunfire.
I reckon this one is even more dramatic than last month’s heist in Chamdor, Krugersdorp, although that one did feature a mad scramble for cash in the aftermath.
According to TimesLIVE, a cash-in-transit security driver was shot and wounded during the incident below, which occurred in Vanderbijlpark yesterday.
Police spokesperson Col Brenda Muridili said a gang, armed with rifles, launched the attack at around 9AM:
Muridili said the gang forced the van to a halt and explosives were used to bomb the armoured vehicle.
She said the gang fled in two vehicles with an undisclosed amount of money.
Muridili said the driver of the cash van sustained gunshot wounds to his leg and ankle.
As things stand, no arrests had been made.
Someone managed to capture this footage of the moment the explosion occurred, at around the 20-second mark:
