Cash van robbers guilty of murder


528

Four men who burnt four security guards to death in a failed cash-in-transit heist were found guilty of murder by the Polokwane High Court on Friday, Limpopo police said.

The men were arrested in 2006, a few months after the incident involving SBV security company guards near Villa Nora, Lt-Col Ronel Otto said.

“They crashed their car into the guards' van on the road, forcing it to overturn,” she said.

“The robbers tried to get the money from the vehicle but they failed as it was locked. They then doused it with petrol and set it alight.”

All the guards died on the scene.

Another nine men accused of involvement in the crime had since been acquitted.

Otto could not immediately reveal the date of sentencing. - Sapa
