Daring Armed Robbers Pounce At Fawcett Security Offices
A daring gang of seven robbers got away with thousands of United States dollars after robbing the Chipinge Fawcett Depot last week.
The armed robbers pounced on a Fawcett control room and disappeared with thousands of US dollars, South African Rands and Zimbabwean dollars.
Chipinge District Criminal Investigation Department spokesperson Detective Assistant Inspector Vincent Chikuvadze confirmed the incident:
“We have launched a man hunt of seven suspects who robbed Fawcett Security Company and walked away with cash. I appeal to the members of the public to come forward with information that may lead to the arrest of the suspects”
Sources said the robbers pounced on Fawcett Checheche depot on June 2 around 7 pm after the Fawcett team had returned from collecting daily takings from Gains wholesale and Mukuru money transfer booth at Checheche growth point TellZim reports.
“The team collected USD$6583, R32 110, ZW$11 937 and undisclosed amount of cash from Mukuru money transfer and took the cash to their Checheche depot and secured it in the safe,”
A Fawcett security officer identified as Last Matewe allegedly returned to the security premises and handed over N Richards keys to other officers who were in the control room for safe keeping.
While he was handing the keys, the robbers approached other security guards, identified as Nhamo Muhlule and Serverino Tanyaara, armed with a loaded shotgun and disarmed them.
Another guard, Desmond Macheza who was inside the control room heard some noise and went to investigate.
He realized that Nhamo Muhlule was being manhandled by one of the robbers advancing to the office. He tried to lock the screen door and closed the wooden door.
Whilst trying to make some alert calls to other work mates and police the robbers broke the screen door lock using a crowbar to gain entry.
They ordered them to lie down and force marched one to the Chubb safes and gun cabinet. After openening them, the suspects loaded the money in sacks and satchels before cutting CCTV cables. They also took two revolvers with 10 rounds each and two shotguns.
They tied all the five security guards and took their cellphones and alarm remote control before getting away.
