“The men were armed with firearms, a hammer and a bag containing explosives,” she said.
Motlana said the store’s cashiers were then told to open the tills.
She said cashiers told the robbers the money was kept in a drop safe, which the men then blew up.
Motlana said after blowing up the safe, the thugs gathered the money and sped off in a getaway car.
“The amount stolen and damaged has not yet been determined,” she said.
Motlana confirmed a case of business robbery in being investigated. Investigations are ongoing.
