POLICE in Karoi are investigating an armed robbery case in which four unidentified men pounced on Engen gas station and vanished with over US$51 000 and a car on Boxing Day.
Acting provincial police spokesman, Assistant Inspector Ian Kohwera confirmed the incident but referred questions to national spokesman, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi.
However, a statement from the ZRP said it was, “Investigating an armed robbery case that occurred at a Service Station in Karoi at around 0300 hours last Sunday when four unidentified men attacked the manager, his family, security and took more than USD 51 500 cash and a VW Golf vehicle.”
