g4sNews24 reports that a security company has offered a R1-million reward for information about the murder of one of its security guards.

The G4S Cash Solutions security guard was murdered during a cash-in-transit heist in Johannesburg on Monday evening. The guards were collecting cash at a filling station in Mohlakeng when they were attacked. The driver of the cash van was shot during the attack and was found still behind the wheel, having suffered gunshot wounds and showing no signs of life. His two colleagues were ordered to lie down and robbed of their service pistols. The van was then blown up, and an undisclosed amount of money taken. Camera footage of the robbery captured an image of one of the perpetrators. The company is offering a R1-million reward for anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest, prosecution and conviction of the perpetrators. "We are making it a priority to ensure these criminals are held to account," said Renso Smit, regional cluster director for G4S Southern Africa. Smit said cash-in-transit heists were becoming increasingly violent, putting the lives of employees at risk.
