Police launch manhunt for cash in transit robbers following Golden Highway heist

VAAL TRIANGLE - Police in Gauteng have launched a manhunt to arrest a group of suspects who are linked to a cash-in-transit (CIT) heist that occurred on the Golden Highway, north of the Vaal Triangle, this morning. Vaal Triangle motorists traveling to Johannesburg via the R553 Golden Highway today are warned that traffic flow was disrupted on the route this morning. According to a preliminary report, a group of armed suspects intercepted a cash van which was travelling on the Golden Highway earlier this morning. The suspects then allegedly blew up the cash van and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money, a rifle and two pistols which they took from the cash van guards. It is alleged that the suspects fled the scene with a blue Audi and a white Toyota Hilux. The guards sustained injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. Further investigations are still underway. Anyone that has information that may assist with the investigation is urged to contact their nearest police station, SAPS Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or alternatively leave an anonymous tip-off on the MySAPS App.
