sapsNews24 reports that police are still on the hunt for a female security guard who allegedly stole R4m in cash from her employer, SBV Services, in July last year.  She has not reported for duty since the incident and her whereabouts are unknown.  

According to a report in Sowetan, Bathobile Mlangeni, 29, cut open two bulk cash bags and then put millions of rands in cash in a few refuse bags, placed them in a trolley and walked off.  These events were apparently recorded on CCTV.  In a statement issued on Tuesday, SBV Services appealed to members of the public for any information which might assist police in their investigation.  The company explained further as follows:  "This is not a cash centre, but a collection facility for cash collected from tenants in the mall.  A case was lodged with the SAPS when the incident occurred, and SBV's Risk and Compliance team is continuing to work closely with the SAPS on the investigation.  This is in line with SBV's relentless pursuit on all matters of crime that affect the business.”  Gauteng police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo urged members of the public who had information on Mlangeni's whereabouts to come forward.
