The raid on the Boksburg gun store ended up with theft of approximately 100 weapons.
The police are seeking for three suspects who are charged with gun shop robbery. The incident occurred on Wednesday morning.
The information based on the police department’s report concludes that a certain man visited the gun shop (Limpopo Arms) and then he told a shopkeeper he wanted to see the assortment. After that, pretending to inspect the pistols, the criminal snatched his weapon and threatened the store managers with it, then he ordered them to open the main safe room. At this point another two suspects burst into the shop to support their accomplice.
“Two more suspects entered the shop and the staff was ordered into a store room where guns were stolen by these three suspects,” the police spokesperson Captain Pearl Van Staad said.
According to the witness, robbers loaded stolen weapons on a green Mazda and then escaped the scene. They got all done without firing a shot.
There is one odd thing that the store camera was shut off during the robbery.
“The suspects fled the scene using a vehicle belonging to Limpopo Arms. The vehicle was later recovered by metro police and the tracking company at corner Pretorius and Tait Streets in Witfield,” Van Staad also added.
Captain Van Staad declared that the police are investigating this incident. Anyone who has any information on the circumstances of the incident, call the nearest police station or call Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
