Alleged CIT robber shot dead during heist #TrioCrimes
A suspected robber was shot dead and firearms recovered following a cash in transit robbery in Florida, west of Gauteng this afternoon.
Shortly after midday today a security guard was collecting money at a service station in Florida when he was confronted by two armed men and robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash as well as his firearm.
Suspects shot a tyre of the CIT vehicle before fleeing. At least four suspects are reported to have fled from the scene in a light delivery vehicle. The suspects’ vehicle was immediately circulated.
A short while later the suspects’ getaway vehicle was spotted in Dobsonville by Metro Police which resulted in a high speed chase and a shootout. A local SAPS vehicle which was also patrolling the area assisted the Metro police officers.
One suspect was shot and killed. An AK-47 rifle and three pistols were recovered. The other three suspects escaped, but investigations to track them are underway.
