This morning Claremont police received a report of an armed robbery at a bank in Grove Avenue.

It’s been alleged that three security officers collected a money box from the bank when three males approached them.

Captain Angie Latchman from the Claremont police said the suspects fled the scene in a getaway vehicle, which was reported stolen in January.

Latchman also said no arrests have been made thus far and investigations will continue.
“Investigations have also established that once the suspects were fleeing on foot, one of the security guards fired a shot in ther direction, no injuries were sustained.”

Further investigation also led to the recovery of the getaway vehicle, which was in a parking lot in the vicinity of the Claremont Boulevard.

“Police are appealing to anyone with information, surrounding the incident, to contact the Investigating Officer Detective Inspector George Ainslie at the Organized Crime Unit on 021- 9183180 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.”
