The complainant had gone to collect the money at Access Forex Finance Bureau de Change at around 11.40 am on behalf of her employer.

After collecting the money, the victim went to her car where she put the cash inside a food plastic container and wrapped it in plastic paper…

The suspect got into the victim’s car using the rear passenger door.

Insp Ncube urged members of the public and companies to always provide security when handling large sums of money.
