SBV Services has offered two R100‚000 rewards for anyone who has information that leads to the arrest of cash-in-transit robbers who struck in two separate heists on Monday in Ramotse‚ Hammanskraal‚ north of Pretoria‚ and Dalton‚ KwaZulu-Natal.

The company confirmed an undisclosed amount of cash was stolen in the heist in Ramotse‚ which happened around 7am‚ but said the investigation was ongoing.

National police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said the armoured truck was at a liquor store when the armed robbers struck.

“A group of armed men held the security guard at gunpoint and robbed him of an undisclosed amount of money he was collecting at the liquor store. No injuries and damages have been reported.”
