Goods worth R5,000 were stolen from a courier van in Sonneglans, Randburg, on Tuesday.

The van, belonging to CourierIt, was parked in a driveway at 10.20am when the crew was confronted.

Honeydew police spokesperson Captain Balan Muthan told News24 that the delivery men were approached by two armed suspects.

“One of the suspects pointed a firearm at the complainant and took some of the parcels from the bakkie,” he said.
