Police in KwaZulu-Natal says the four suspects killed in a shoot-out with officers in Camperdown are linked to some cash-in-transit robberies in the province.

Provincial Police Spokesperson Jay Naicker, says, “Over the past week, we had a spate of cash-in-transit robberies in the province. We have been very worried that the gang that was carrying that out had intelligence on the movement of cash. They were robbing vehicles with large amounts of cash. The Hawks are investigating and we’ve been working jointly with them. It’s a multi-disciplinary investigation.”
