Police warn stokvels after cash heist in Humansdorp

Police in Humansdorp are urging stokvels and savings clubs to rather use electronics banking systems instead of keeping cash in houses, following a house robbery incident in Humansdorp on Tuesday morning, at about 11:00.

According to the police, three men wearing balaclavas and armed with firearms stormed into a house in Mjekula Street, in KwaNomzamo, Humansdorp, and held two occupants at gunpoint.

“The suspects tied the victims with tapes and stole large sum of money before fleeing on foot,” said police spokesperson, Sergeant Majola Nkohli.

He added that no person was injured during incident.

Police are investigating.
