A further R1 million was found hidden in the the bombed cash in transit van under the seat of the crew.
The men aged 25, 28, and 40 are facing charges of murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, possession of suspected stolen money, perjury, and defeating the ends of justice.
The other suspects are still at large.
