Cash-in-transit heists: More than 160 attacks on cash vans this year

Police say their efforts to combat cash-in-transit heists are paying off.

That’s despite five attempted robberies in the past week.

According to statistics, there were 61 percent fewer robberies in June than in May.

Police launched a nationwide operation at the beginning of June.

Since then, more than 40 suspects have been arrested and a substantial amount of money and weapons recovered.
