Robbers get away with over N$400 000 at Westlane

by Staff Writer

Three armed robbers got away with N$487 320 after they hit a G4S cash in transit vehicle that was collecting money at Westlane shopping center in Windhoek today.

Namibian Police Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kanguatjivi confirmed to The Villager that G4S crew men collected cash from the supermarket located at Shipman Street, Pioneers Park extension 1.

“It is alleged that the suspects grabbed the victim as he was opening the cash in transit vehicle to put the money in the loading box,” Kanguatjivi said.  

Kanguatjivi said the suspects fired one shot at the vehicle’s window although the bullet did not hit the driver who was about to disembark from the vehicle to assist his colleague. 

“The suspects then grabbed the boxes of money and drove off.

The getaway vehicle was seen driving along David Hosea Merero Drive towards the eastern direction,” he said.

The G4S driver pursued the vehicle driven by the robbers but lost sight of the suspects.

No one was injured during the heist. Nampol said no suspects have been arrested yet and investigation continue.
