US$2.7m Cash-In-Transit Heist: Suspect Killed In Shoot-out,

A suspect in last week’s US$2.7 million ZB Bank cash-in-transit robbery died in Zaka on Thursday in a shoot-out with detectives, while three others appeared in court on Friday.

Andrew Chigara was one of the suspects on the run but died at Ndanga District Hospital on Thursday evening from gunshot wounds sustained in the shoot-out at Ndanga Business Centre while he was resisting arrest.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi yesterday said detectives tracked Chigara to Ndanga Business Centre in Zaka on Thursday. Nyathi said:

Upon seeing the detectives at the business centre, the suspect tried to run away resulting in a shoot-out with police. Chigara sustained serious injuries and was taken to Ndanga Hospital where he passed on.

So far, police have arrested 11 out of 15 suspects in the staged robbery and recovered US$690 000 while three more suspects, including the alleged mastermind, are still being sought.
