After taking care of the guard, the thugs followed through with their elaborate scheme- so, they used a grinder to gain access to a safe.

However, Briefly.co.za learned the robbers only found R192 in the safe because post offices do not generally keep a lot of cash lying around.

The next day, when the post office's staff arrived, the six robbers, who are wanted by the cops, became the laughing stock in town.

The staff debated whether they would divide the money equally amongst each other, which means each thug gets about R32, or would fight until one person takes home the R192.
