A group of at least eight robbers disguising as Police have carried out a robbery at O. R. Tambo International Airport in South Africa, reports say. The robbers wearing police uniforms were said to have driven into a restricted zone on Tuesday evening and headed straight to cash-laden containers unloaded from a cargo plane.
According to a Times Live report, they made away with $15 million which was about to be loaded onto an aircraft bound for London. After the robbery incident, the unidentified robbers escaped through the same entrance at the airport.
However, police have confirmed the robbery and suspect it to be an inside job.
While a police source who spoke to BBC described the robbery as looking like ‘something scripted from a Hollywood movie.’
