Brazen heist at liquor shop in Walmer Park
Three men and three women stole bottles of alcohol from the Pick n Pay Liquor Store in the Walmer Park Shopping Centre after threatening the security guard with a firearm, at about 1.45pm on Thursday.
Police spokesperson Captain Johan Rheeder said the three men stood outside the store while the women went inside.
“One suspect lifted his top and showed a firearm to the security guard. The three women inside then placed several bottles of alcohol in their bags and [left] the store.”
The security guard then raised the alarm. “The suspects spilt up, with some climbing into taxis parked near the centre.”
A case of business robbery was opened.
