A clip of a cash-in-transit vehicle that was ambushed and then run over near Archerfish Drive alongside the Eskom Convention Centre in Midrand on Tuesday this week was shared online by the Facebook page Cybercroft Solutions.
In the clip, a large number of locals can be seen both gathered around the CIT vehicle and inside it searching for any cash that may have been left behind by whoever executed the heist. However, there does not appear to be any left.
"Happened a few minutes ago. CIT van attacked at Archerfish Drive alongside Eskom Convention Centre, Midrand," Cybercroft Solutions captioned the post.
Many South Africans headed to the comment section to share their thoughts on the clip. Read a few of them below:
Spha Power Ntobela said:
"Police are busy arresting pastors for church services, certain people and not everyone who are not wearing masks, while failing serious crime like CIT and gang groups in Cape town...Cele is useless."
Eric Schultz said:
"Lawlessness will just increase under the ANC government, there is no political will to have order in this country. It is only a taste of what will follow in the near future."
Ettiene Jacobs said:
"These people are just as guilty as the CIT robbers. Disgusting!"

In other Briefly.co.za crime news, a clip of a South African man getting hijacked has been shared online. In the clip, which was uploaded by Twitter user @YusufAmbramjee, the driver of an expensive Mustang pulls up into a Honeydew driveway.
Not long thereafter a white vehicle carrying an unknown number of people pulls up behind him and two gun-wielding men jump out. The men then proceed to walk up to the window and demand the driver get out. The hijackers make off with the car while the owner hides nearby.
"Hijacking: Honeydew, JHB," Abramjee captioned the clip on Twitter.
