Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Brenda Muridili confirmed that there had been a cash-in-transit incident on Jakes Gerwel Drive (formerly Vanguard Drive).
Wet bank notes lay stuck to the tarmac around a badly damaged G4S cash-in-transit van after it was shot at during an apparent heist on a busy motorway in Cape Town on Monday.
A team of forensic experts were coming the scene for clues just before 11am‚ watched by hundreds of bystanders. A security officer‚ wearing a G4S uniform‚ walked around with his head covered by a bandage.
It was unclear if any money was taken but video footage taken by witnesses recorded several gunshots being fired‚ causing mayhem in early-morning traffic as motorists tried to get away from the scene.
