handcuffsANA reports that three employees were among a total of eight people arrested in connection with a robbery at a Klerksdorp bank where more than R3 million was stolen, the Hawks said on Tuesday.  

The Priority Violent Crimes Unit arrested the latest six people in Klerksdorp and Upington after a bank robbery that took place in April this year.  Captain Tlangelani Rikhotso said:  "The suspects allegedly colluded and stole more than R3 million at the local Nedbank branch.  Two suspects allegedly posed as security officers to do a routine pickup.  They produced fake documents and were handed money by the bank staff."  Following the robbery, an intelligence-driven Hawks operation led to the arrest of two suspects two weeks ago, while six more people were arrested at the weekend.  All eight people were expected to appear in the Klerksdorp Magistrate on Tuesday, facing charges of theft.
