Police believe they are making progress regarding some cash-in-transit robberies in Gauteng.

This after a red car containing several firearms and ammunition was discovered near the Oriental Plaza in Fordsburg, Johannesburg on Saturday afternoon.

Gauteng has seen two cash-in-transit heists in just 48 hours this week.

On Thursday, over ten suspects bombed two cash vans in Boksburg, East of Johannesburg before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash. Seven suspects have been arrested so far.

On Friday, a group of armed men robbed a cash-in-transit van on the N4 east of Pretoria. However no arrests have been made.

“Information was received of a red Audi parked inside a yard of flats opposite the Oriental Plaza. Officers then found a balaclava and gloves inside the car and when they look into the boot they discovered an AK-47, R5 rifle, a revolver and 30 lose rounds of AK-47. It has also been established that the Audi was hijacked in Brooklyn last month and that will also form part of the investigation,” explains Metro police spokesperson Wayne Minaar .
