Cops robbed of R2.2m in downtown JHB


The Hawks were following leads after crime intelligence officers were robbed of R2.2 million in cash in downtown Johannesburg, the unit said on Sunday.

“Our investigations are at an advanced stage, but I cannot reveal further details,” spokesman McIntosh Polela said.

The robbery happened at around 11am on Friday in Xavier Street. The officers had just left a bank with the money and were going back to their car when robbers confronted them at gunpoint.

City Press reported on Sunday that the money, withdrawn from an Absa bank branch, was meant for the crime intelligence's secret and witness protection funds. - Sapa
