Missing Bieber millions four years later (and he's on his way back)

It's been four years since the million rand heist took place just hours after a Justin Bieber concert at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, and investigators still don't know who did it.

Criminals are believed to have chiselled their way through a wall of the strong room where concert promoters kept the money.

EWN's Mandy Wiener spoke to the concert organiser's former head of security about the heist. He makes reference to police bungling, tip-offs to the CEO and a Cape psychic.

We don't know about who did it but there are some suspicions.

It reads like the pages of a crime novel or a scene out of an Oceans Eleven movie. There was a rumor that the money was stashed in a wheel well of a car and smuggled out that way, that it was in the walls of a maintenance manager's house from the West Rand in Johannesburg

Nobody was ever arrested, the prime suspect was one of the maintenance manager's at the FNB stadium he ha since died, so there is this thought that he buried it somewhere and now that he is dead no one knows where it is.
