In Kabokweni, Mpumalanga, a guy was detained in connection with a bungled cash van heist. A guy was arrested on Wednesday for illegally possessing ammunition and has been linked to a bungled robbery in Kabokweni, Mpumalanga, last year. The driver of a cash vehicle was slain in the bungled theft, according to police.

The Hawks in Mbombela have detained Solly Ralph Sibiya, 34.

During the questioning, spokesperson Capt Dineo Lucy Sekgotodi stated he was linked to the Kabokweni attempted robbery case from April last year. G4S security personnel stopped at Khumbula garage in Kabokweni on April 16 last year, according to the Hawks. A member of the crew walked into the shop to get the money.

The other crew member was waiting outside when he heard gunshots and observed 12 to 15 suspects on the scene who ran as he returned fire. During the incident, no money was taken. The driver of the armoured vehicle was killed, and the suspects fled in a double-cab Toyota Hilux bakkie, Sekgotodi said.

On Thursday, Sibiya appeared in court for the first time and was remanded in custody until next Friday, when he is scheduled to seek for release.

A federal judge on Friday prevented the US government from suspending COVID-19 limits, which let border officials to turn back migrants without giving them the opportunity to seek asylum. Flora Bradley-Watson contributes to this story.

COVID border limitations must be maintained, according to two suspects who allegedly kidnapped a US judge.
