Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
The apparent ease with which robbers stole a whopping R50 million from Coin Security in Modderfontein at the weekend boggles the mind.
The sheer nonchalance exhibited by the gang in pulling off a heist of such magnitude in a building that should resemble a fortress raises suspicions that was an inside job.
Though we are told only R2million was stolen, our sources, however, insist that the figure has been watered down.
Many companies rely on security firms for the safekeeping of their money. They should be concerned at the brazenness of the robbers and the security at the Coin depot.
An intensive probe has to be launched to establish how the robbers gained access in and out of the premises.
