The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has recovered US$456 000 and vehicles from the US$2.5 million stolen in the cash-in-transit heist that happened in Gwebi last week.
The recovery follows the arrest of suspects who were reportedly working in cahoots with ZB Bank‘s security personnel.
So far police have recovered the following out of the total stolen in the cash-in-transit heist:
- US$456 000
- white Toyota Hiace,
- Charcoal grey Baby Quantum,
- Toyota Lexus and
- Honda Fit, all purchased from the loot.
From the recovered money, US$38 000 was recovered from one Kelvin Musakwa, (25), a brother to one of the three ZB bank security details also implicated in the heist.
The ZB trio is caged and returns to court on February 18 after police successfully applied for a warrant for further detention citing that they were still following up on indications that could lead to possible recovery.
