South Africa’s police have arrested four people suspected of being involved in a daring robbery last week at the OR Tambo International airport in Johannesburg.
Armed thieves masquerading as police made away with containers of cash.
The four suspects are facing charges of “armed robbery, ” police chief Khomotso Phahlanetold a media briefing in Pretoria.
Only two suspects appeared in court today, the other two – one of whom is a police officer – are still being questioned.
Mr Phahlane said investigations point to “an inside job” and praised the intelligence network for helping to apprehend the suspects:
“We are not solely reliant on tip offs. We must congratulate crime intelligence for helping to apprehend those involved”.
He said that the money that was stolen has not yet been recovered.Source: BBC
