Pretoria - Gauteng police are searching for 18 men who robbed the Morula Sun Casino outside Pretoria of R3.5m, a spokesperson said on Monday.

Captain Solly Marindi said a cashier who works at the casino was also kidnapped during the robbery on Sunday.

"Five armed men entered the casino at 20:10 and fired shots into the entertainment area. They were carrying rifles," he said.

The robbers then made their way to the cashier section and demanded money.

After collecting the money, they then kidnapped a male cashier and sped off in a Toyota Hilux. Also on standby were their accomplices in an Audi A4 situated at the gate, a BMW and two Mercedes Benz vehicles inside the venue, he said.

"The cashier was then dumped on the side of the road while they drove off in convoy."

No one was injured and police were investigating, he said.
