handcuffsNews24 reports that five employees of a cash delivery company have been arrested in connection with a cash-in-transit heist earlier this month.  

The men, aged between 30 and 48, were arrested for their role in a heist on 13 April during which R30m was stolen.  The gang targeted an armoured cash vehicle which had left a depot in Spartan, east of Johannesburg, en route to Selby.  But before it got to its destination, the vehicle stopped in Kensington.  The armoured vehicle was opened from the back and three men took money bags from it and fled with about R30m in cash.  The guards then drove away only to alert the employer about the 'robbery' a few kilometres away from the scene.  They were subsequently found unconscious and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment where it was established that they had apparently drunken soft drinks spiked with an unknown substance.  Police are still looking for four other suspects, one of whom was the driver of the armoured vehicle.
