As easy as you like. Not bothered to cover their faces and in full view of multiple CCTV cameras a brazen gang made off with 117 cell phones, sneakers, sports gear and emptied the tills at a TotalSports in Mbombela.

The footage was released to media and the public in hopes that someone can identify the men.

This incident took place on the 24th of last month mid-morning.

Reports also suggest the gang is wanted in a string of other heists which include a robbery at the Touch Of Gold Jewellery Store and a robbery at I’Langa Mall earlier in the month.

The footage below shows the armed gang casually walk into the store before holding up the cashier at gunpoint demanding money from the till. Others make their way into frame carrying boxes of sneakers and some other sporting gear.

The staff is then forced into the backroom when the door is closed and locked.

The four-man gang casually walk out with their loot passing shoppers as the video ends.

Police have urgently asked for anyone with information regarding this or any other of the robberies mentioned to contact Det. Const. Busi Mahlangu at 013 249 1402.

Please share this information.
