SABRIC ALARMED BY RISING LEVELS OF CASH-IN-TRANSIT HEISTS

JOHANNESBURG – The South African Banking Risk Information Centre (Sabric) says the number of cash-in-transit heists in the country this year are frightful, following two more such crimes on Tuesday.

Two vans transporting money were bombed in separate incidents – one in Hartbeespoort and the other in Pretoria – just a few minutes apart.

In a third incident in the Kagiso industrial area on the West Rand, robbers traveling in two vehicles fired shots at a G4S security van but left empty handed.

Sabric CEO Kalyani Pillay says that their team is extremely concerned about the increase in cash in transit heists, with more than 150 cases in the past year.

“We have highly organised syndicates, highly armed, between 15 or even more people involved.”

Pillay has called on the police to act more swiftly and make arrests.

Sabric says that cash vans have sufficient security but the will be reviewed if needed.
