Cash-In-Transit Security Team Forced To Turn Their Car Into A Weapon [Video]

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

As cash-in-transit heists increase the around the country, one team managed to fend off their attackers.

And they did so by turning their armoured vehicle into a weapon.

The incident occurred last week in Krugersdorp and was caught on CCTV footage, reports Times LIVE.

The footage, which is now being circulated on social media, shows “two armed robbers dragging a trolley with cash towards a getaway car in the street with at least two people inside”:

As they pick up the money to load it into the car‚ the getaway car starts to drive away. The armoured vehicle drives up and rams into the back of the getaway car.

The two armed robbers are left stranded as the van pursues the getaway car. The getaway car drives off and the armoured van turns around to pick up the money. Moments later the getaway car drives up from behind and one can see one armed robber with a handgun before the video stops

Take a look for yourself:

Now that’s some quick thinking.

The security team belongs to G4S Cash Solutions, whose spokesperson Wendy Hardy explained that the incident happened on October 2:

One of their teams was doing a routine cash collection in Krugersdorp when a group of armed robbers struck.

One G4S employee was shot in the leg during the incident.

“He is now in a stable condition after being treated in hospital and both crew members involved are being supported with trauma counselling.”

Hardy said she has never seen footage like it.

“What I can say is that our crews do a good job in difficult circumstances every day to transport money around the country‚ which isn’t always on film or seen by the public.”

Luckily no one was harmed further, and the police have opened an investigation.
