Police confirm cash-in-transit robbery atGrove Mall

Police spokesperson Kauna Shikwambi has confirmed that a cash-in-transit robbery occurred at the Grove Mall of Namibia in Windhoek yesterday morning.

The robbers gained access through the loading zone’s backyard, stealing approximately N$306 000.

Three security guards from Namibia Protection Services were collecting money from various companies when they were confronted by five armed individuals with pistols and one AK-47 rifle.

It is alleged that one of the officers went to collect two boxes of money from Checkers, while the driver remained in the vehicle.
“On his way back, he put the boxes on the ground to open the back of the vehicle when he was instructed to lie down alongside the other officer,” Shikwambi says.

The vehicle used to get away was white, with government plates with two different registration numbers, 3291 in the front and 27012 at the back.

“The victims are free from injuries, but their two pistols were taken away by the robbers. Police investigations are underway,” Shikwambi says.
