South Africa Johannesburg – National police commissioner General Khehla Sitole has launched a 72-hour activation plan after a cash heist at Fidelity’s Guard Base in Gauteng on Saturday morning.

Police are on the hunt for armed robbers involved in a daring cash heist at a Fidelity guard base in Pretoria on Saturday morning.

In a circulating WhatsApp message which was purportedly sent by an officer from the scene, he said the value of the money stolen was about R30m.

The officer said the Fidelity guards were not armed, no shots were fired and nobody was injured in the ordeal.

The gang made off with an undisclosed amount of cash during the heist in Van Riebeeck Road, Hermanstad.

“A group of armed men, dressed in what appeared to [be Fidelity] uniform and balaclavas, entered the premises and held the guards at gunpoint and assaulted some employees before robbing them of an undisclosed amount of money,” according to national police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo.
