JOHANNESBURG – Limpopo police launched a manhunt for two suspects who blew up a cash-in-transit van in Gravelotte, Limpopo on Tuesday morning.

Limpopo police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe said three armed suspects were travelling in three cars - two Mercedez Benz and one BMW - when they approached the van.

“During the attack, the suspects shot at the van and the wheels came off, resulting in the (van) veering off the road. They then blew (up) the van with explosives,” he said.

 

 

The suspects fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

No one was injured during the incident.

Ngoepe said a provincial tracing team was following up on clues as to the whereabouts of the suspects.

This incident followed another in Limpopo a week ago, during which ten suspects used explosives to open a cash-in-transit van on the N4, close to Crocodile Gorge near Mbombela.
