Items belonging to a police officer were found on two suspects arrested for a recent cash-in-transit heist in Durban earlier this month.

The suspects were on parole for committing cash-in-transit heists and could return to jail for the same crime they were incarcerated for. South Africans applauded the hard work of the South African Police Service after apprehending the suspects.

The men were arrested on 15 October by the Hawks in a joint operation with the national intervention unit, the Tactical Response Team and Magma Security. According to TimesLIVE, the two were caught in Rainham near Phoenix.

The cops were investigating the CIT robbery when they were told the suspects were moving in a Lexus sedan. When the cops apprehended them, they found an undisclosed amount of money, a police constable’s uniform, a police mask, a radio, blue overalls, blue lights and a police reflector jacket.

They were busted for possession of suspected stolen property, property belonging to the state and ammunition. The suspects were linked to the CIT heist early in October, where four vehicles were attacked and bombed.
