Two men have been arrested in Mosselbay, in connection with an armed robbery in Cape Town.

Western Cape police say the men allegedly robbed a vault in Orange Street in Cape Town on Thursday. They gained entry by posing as clients who wanted to store items they collected. Once inside they held two guards at gunpoint and tied their hands behind their backs. The two men aged 32 and 38 fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and jewellery.

Cape Town and Mosselbay detectives followed up information and traced the men to a Colt bakkie at an Engen garage in Mosselbay. Police approached the vehicle and requested to search it yesterday.

They found a firearm in possession of one of the men and seized a suitcase containing an undisclosed amount of cash, Kruger rands and jewellery.
