THE LIFT THAT LED TO A MONEY HEIST

The cash-in-transit team that was robbed of US$2,5 million gave the six robbers a lift in Harare. Police said the team was travelling in a Toyota Hilux and picked up the gang at Westgate and Inkomo Turn-off.

On approaching Gwebi River Bridge lay-bye, the driver stopped the vehicle after one of his colleagues asked empty his bowels. As soon as the car stopped, one of the gang produced a pistol and fired a shot into the air while his accomplices disarmed one of the security guards of his 303 rifle.

The suspects tied the security guards’ hands and legs before driving the car to a nearby bush where they offloaded the money, which was in seven cash boxes. The suspects loaded the boxes into their gateaway Toyota vehicle, whose make and registration numbers are not yet known.

Three suspects have since been arrested.
