    Default Security shoots thief after robbery

    2013-07-04 21:37







    Johannesburg - A man was killed in Mahikeng, North West, when he tried to rob a business owner at gunpoint, police said on Thursday.
    Police spokesperson Sabata Mokgwabone said the suspect and an his accomplice confronted the man when he arrived home at Molopo Street, on Wednesday carrying a bag of money.
    They fired two shots and ordered him to hand over the bag. He did and the two ran away.
    A security guard in the house, which was also used as a gas refilling business, gave chase and fired at the fleeing robbers.
    One of them was hit and died on the scene.
    The second robber escaped.
    The bag with money was recovered, along with the firearm the robbers used.
    The gun was stolen from a police officer a few minutes before the robbery.
    Apparently the officer was at a nearby filling station moving something from the boot of his vehicle when the robbers grabbed the gun from his waist and ran away.
    Police opened a murder docket.

    Another win for the good guys here. Obviously overshadowed by the excellent work done by the gentlemen in Fordsburg, but a job well done nonetheless.

    Very immaginative cover story by the cop. At least he can keep the deposit.

    2 thumbs up for one less armed robber....
    Just worried about this:
    A security guard in the house, which was also used as a gas refilling business, gave chase and fired at the fleeing robbers.
    One of them was hit and died on the scene.
    The security guard must just be careful that they don't rip him a new one....
