Five police crime intelligence officers are due to appear before the Sasolburg Magistrate court today facing charges of armed robbery and attempted murder.
THE officers who were arrested by the Hawks are allegedly involved in a cash-in-transit robbery earlier this year.
Hawks Spokesperson Paul Ramaloko says they will appear in a Sasolburg court on Thursday where they would be formally charged.
According to Ramaloko, the officers allegedly robbed a cash-in-transit vehicle of R3 million in Vaalpark, Sasolburg, in February.
“The Coin Security vehicle was travelling from a depot in Naledi Industrial Park to a petrol station when a Toyota Land cruiser collided with it side-on at a stop sign,” he said.
Two more vehicles, both without number plates, arrived at the scene and three men got out and opened fire on the cash-in-transit vehicle with automatic rifles.
They opened the doors and took the cash.

This is not news to us.
What about all the "Crime Intelligence" officers arrested for Drug Heists at O R Tambo Airport as well those arrested for ATM bombings?
POLICEMEN WERE ALSO ARRESTED FOR HEISTS AT CASINO'S?
They were never convicted?
There is definately a "Third Force" within the ANC Government santioning these HEISTS......?
We should demand TRUE statistic for these crimes by the SAPS.
