A security guard was held up by three armed men, early on Friday morning in Mitchells Plain and robbed of more than R18 000.

The Transcash guard was colleting cash at one of the businesses in the Prominade Mall.

“The official was approached on his return through the entrance by four armed men, demanding that he hand over the cash box,” says police spokesperson Elliot Sinyangana.

“They jumped into a white Toyota Corolla and fled the scene, apparently while speeding they opened the box and as a result a smoke steamed and clouded the inside of the vehicle,” Sinyangana.

Arriving at the scene, police found the cash box but the ink-contaminated and the cash it contained was gone. The cash box was found on the corner of AZ Berman and Highland Drive, Mitchells Plain.

“At this stage we are investigating a cash in transit case and that of armed robbery,” says Sinyangana

Anyone with information is requested to contact Detective Reginald Mtshali of Organised Crime unit at 021 950 1345 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
