A G4S cash-in-transit vehicle has been ambushed by criminals on Cape Town’s Jakes Gerwel Drive.

A stretch of the road is closed at this hour as police comb the scene for clues.

Another cash vehicle is pictured here, but it’s not clear if that one was robbed as well.

There’s been a surge in cash-in-transit heists this year, mostly in Gauteng – but the Western Cape is among the provinces with the fewest number of attacks recorded.

Employees, meanwhile, are fed up, calling for increased security to protect themselves.
