Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi confirmed today that detectives recovered more than N$430 000 that was stashed inside a secure cash transit bag.
Shikwambi confirmed that the cash consisted of one bundle of US$2 000, another of US$4 500 and N$336 000.
She said four of the robbers were South African citizens, and two Zimbabwean.
According to the police, at least two of the suspects, a woman and a man, acted as insiders who worked at a store in the mall, providing the two armed men who assaulted a G4S security guard as well as shot at the driver of the transit van, with information.
The police have received widespread praise for the quick action that led to the arrests late on Monday night.
It was reported that President Hage Geingob praised the police’s swift response and arrest of the suspects yesterday.
Shikwambi said that four were arrested round 21:00 on the way to Rehoboth and two arrests took place in Windhoek.
G4S has confirmed that the two employees who were robbed were not injured, and are doing okay.
