Reading Time: < 1 minute

Two of the six robbery suspects who were arrested for robbery at the Nedbank branch in Klerksdorp in the North West last month have been granted bail of R30 000 each by the local magistrate’s court.

The other four have been granted R20 000 each.

The suspects managed to steal R3 million during the robbery.

The six Welcome Marcus and his accomplices from Edenvale and Fleurhof in the Gauteng Province allegedly posed as SBV security officers on a routine cash pick-up.

Dressed in SBV security uniform, they entered the CBD bank premises and collected cash after producing false credentials.

They were handed the money and swiftly left the bank.

The tracing operation resulted in the recovery of just over R50 000 from one of the suspect’s home.

Financial and asset forfeiture investigations were conducted by both the Hawks in North West and Gauteng Technical Response Team.
