ARMED ROBBERY AT CHIVI MUKURU COMPLEX
The Zimbabwe Republic Police is investigating an armed robbery case which occurred at N. Richards, Chivi on 30 November 2020 at about 0934 hours when five (5) unknown suspects armed with pistols ambushed a Safe Guard cash-in–transit vehicle delivering cash at Mukuru and attacked them.
The robbers pointed firearms at the security guards as they were disembarking from the vehicle and disarmed them before stealing a cash box containing US$35 000.00, ZAR350 000.00 and ZW$2 000.00 from the vault.
They jumped into an unregistered blue Toyota Revo twin cab which was used as a getaway car and sped off towards Mandamabwe Business Centre. The suspects also robbed three Star pistols from the guards.
The Police are disturbed by robbery incidents which are targeting cash–in–transit vehicles.
We implore security companies to strengthen their security measures in consultation with clients.
This robbery comes hardly a few weeks after the Bulawayo one where ZUPCO lost over zw$2 million.
Meanwhile, Police are appealing for information which may lead to the arrest of these suspects.
Anyone with information should report to the nearest police station or call the following numbers: – Harare Operations 0242 748836, National Complaints Desk 0242 703631 or Whatsapp 0712800197.
