Police thwart ‘planned robbery’ at Centurion Mall

Two men with a gun, gloves and a signal jammer were arrested when police foiled a planned robbery in the Centurion Mall in Gauteng.

The robbery was due to take place on Tuesday in the mall.


“A multidisciplinary team made up of members of the criminal police, the motorway police and the trackers operationalized information they had received about a planned robbery in the Centurion Mall,” said police spokesman Dimakatso Sello.

” Members were strategically posted in and around the mall for observation, and two allegedly deployed vehicles were spotted entering the mall.

“The suspects discovered that the police were nearby and escaped from the scene. “

Two men were arrested while their alleged accomplices were escaping. They are expected to appear in court soon.

” As our safer Christmas campaign started, I explained that we will not share the same room with criminals. We have more boots on the ground, complemented by police reservists and support community members to ensure there is no place for criminals to act, “said the provincial police commissioner, Lt. Gen. Elias Mawela.
