Theft robbery

Armed robbers descended at cash crusaders today, check what they did

Businesses are being greatly affected by the operations which are being done by armed robbers in South Africa.

Their profitability is being affected negatively and investor confidence is deteriorating with each passing day.

Law enforcement agents seem to be not up to the task when it comes to handling criminals who are terrorising the nation.

Calls have been made for an increase in the presence of security in the country as this is seen as one possible solution.

On Sunday the 20th of June 2021, a case of armed robbery was reported in the Gauteng Province. Crime Air Network shared the report and this left many questioning the state of security in the country.

It happened at a business premise in the city of Ekurhuleni and this was at a time when businesses are trying hard to return to full capacity as the coronavirus pandemic has taken its toll on the nation.

A group of robbers walked into a Cash Crusaders retail outlet in Primrose, Germiston and produced rifles.

They commanded all customers and members of staff who were in the shop to lie on the floor before they demanded the safe to be opened.

All the tills were emptied and the safe was opened as the robbers took away all the cash and valuables.

They did the robbery in a haste and fled from the scene in unidentified getaway vehicles.

An alarm was raised after the suspects had fled from the scene and police and security teams responded.

They got to the scene and began carrying out investigations. No reports of arrests have been made so far and the police are looking for leads as they seek to apprehend the suspects.

Employees and customers were left traumatised by the whole incident and it is fortunate that there were no injuries reported.

When members of the public heard the news, they all shared the same thought that there is need for proactive security systems to be put in place.
