The armed gang detonated the truck before blowing it up and fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.

While two cash-in-transit drivers were doing their usual routine of collecting money, the pair was suddenly surrounded and their truck blown up during a robbery in West Park, Pretoria, on Monday night.

The Fidelity truck was collecting cash from various petrol stations when, at around 6.45pm, a Toyota Hilux stopped in front of the truck on the corners of Rod and Van Dalsen Streets.

Three other vehicles also surrounded the truck, police spokesperson Captain Bonginkosi Msimango said.

“[The robbers] forced both drivers and their crew out, pointing at them with a revolver and a 9mm pistol. The drivers and crew managed to flee.”

He said the armed gang detonated the truck before blowing it up and fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.
