handcuffsNews24 reports that a female Tshwane metro police officer is among 23 people arrested last week for various crimes related to cash-in-transit heists.  

SA Police Service (SAPS) spokesman Brigadier Vish Naidoo said on Sunday:  “[On Friday], the team, acting on intelligence, arrested … a 32-year-old man and his girlfriend, for the May Boksburg CIT [cash-in-transit] robbery where two armoured vehicles were targeted.  The girlfriend, a Tshwane Metro Police Officer, is alleged to have been storing the weapons that were used during the attack of two CIT vehicles in Boksburg.”  A rifle, magazine and several rounds of ammunition were recovered, and a Toyota Quantum, which was believed to be a cash purchase, was confiscated.  Naidoo said that the metro cop’s boyfriend was believed to be linked to several cash-in-transit robberies in the country.  In another arrest on Friday, linked to the same cash-in-transit heist which took place in May in Boksburg, a 42-year-old illegal immigrant was arrested in Wonderboom.
