The police are there to protect you, right?
A while ago there was a big heist at one of our airports, where about R100 million rand was stolen.
The police recovered some of the money and it was locked away in one of their safes. Now someone has stolen it from their safe (about R10 million)! They used an angle grinder and with all that noise, nobody heard them. It is speculated that it was an inside job.
Cash in transit heists are also a very common thing here in South Africa. Hijacking as well.
