JOHANNESBURG - The Hawks have now confirmed that more than 200 safety deposit boxes were stolen during a heist at an FNB branch in Randburg last week.
An unknown group of men overpowered a security guard, held him hostage and made off with the safety deposit boxes after grinding their way through a wall with a power tool.
The Hawks say there hasn’t been any breakthrough as yet and no suspects have been identified.
Spokesperson Ndivuho Mulamu said, “The investigation team is still busy counting the boxes and so far we have counted 250 boxes. No arrests have been made at this point and police are still following up on a lead on information they are receiving regarding the matter.”
