At about 8.10am today (12 February) a Fidelity cash-in-transit (CIT) van was robbed outside Witpoortjie Spar on Generaal Pienaar Avenue.
According to an employee a silver BMW followed the van into the parking lot. The Fidelity officer went into the store while one of the robbers went and stood at the magazine stand pretending to look at magazines. As the security officer was leaving, the robber followed and confronted him in the parking lot, pointing a firearm at him. The robber took the money boxes and fled.

What raises suspicion is that only one security officer and the CIT van driver came to collect the money this morning. Usually two extra heavily armed officers stand guard outside while the money boxes are being collected.
