A video surfaced on social media which showed two guards, one of whom was allegedly sleeping, getting jumped by armed criminals. However, social media users are convinced the thugs had an inside man.
On Sunday, South Africa Live shared a video on Facebook of a sleeping guard getting jumped by armed criminals.
According to the post, the robbers jumped the fence in front of CCTV cameras, which were supposed to be monitored by a guard who fell asleep.
The post added the other CCTV operator watched as his colleague snoozed before the thugs walked past him and jumped the sleeping man.
The Facebook post claims the thugs then went on to rob an ATM afterwards. Briefly.co.za could not determine where or when the footage was taken.
The footage left Mzansi shocked and some even felt it was staged.
However, the majority of viewers smelled a rat and they accused the standing guard of being a part of the elaborate scheme.
Skinjean Sbu Māsãñgō commented: "Inside job mxn easy and soft."
