No arrests have yet been made in the attempted cash in transit heist that occurred on the R702 between Bloemfontein and Dewetsdorp in the early hours of Monday morning.

The Free State Hawks spokesperson, Lynda Steyn, told Bloemfontein Courant that no money was taken from the cash vehicle but a riffle was stolen and later recovered by authorities on the scene. She also said even though many shots were fired, nobody was injured.

Steyn further explained that the Hawks are still investigating the matter and all leads will be followed up. They are pleading with the community to please come forth with any information.
