Police Minister Bheki Cele commends SAPS on further arrests of cash heist suspects

The Minister of Police, the honourable Bheki Cele has commended members of the South African Police Service on the arrest of another six suspects allegedly responsible for cash in transit heists.

In an intelligence driven operation a multi disciplinary team intercepted six suspects wanted in connection with aggravated robberies, particularly cash in transit heists.

Recently, South Africa has been plagued by a number of these robberies in majority of the provinces prompting the Minister and National Commissioner to implement extraordinary intervention measures nationally.

Since the implementation of these interventions on 4 June 2018 several suspects have been arrested and firearms, money and even explosives and explosive devices have been seized. More importantly, no cash in transit heists have been reported since then.

“I am satisfied with the hard work and dedication shown by the multi disciplinary teams”, said Minister Cele.

The arrest of these six suspects brings the total to 21 including a number two on a list of top 20 that have been arrested since the high density multi disciplinary stability operation.

“These highly specialized tactical teams will continue to intensify operations until we are satisfied that we have everyone that is terrorizing fellow South Africans while committing cash in transit robberies and related crimes “, added Minister Cele.
