Johannesburg - A 32-year-old suspect was arrested by the Hawks for hijacking a cash-in-transit vehicle in Epping last week, police said on Monday.
Hawks spokesperson Captain Philani Nkwalase said the arrest was made on Friday.
"The Hawks investigation has linked the suspect to a cash-in-transit heist that occurred at Bayside Food Centre, Epping on 25 July 2019."
Nkwalase said a security crew collected cash at the centre, and on their return to the armoured vehicle found that it was missing, along with the driver.
"The vehicle was later recovered at Noxolo Street in Langa. The driver was unharmed whilst an undisclosed amount of cash and his firearm were taken," he said.
