Armed robbers stormed a financial services company in Harare’s Belgravia area on Sunday but were not so lucky to escape with their whole loot after dropping US$5 000 cash and some laptops at the scene of the crime.

Police confirmed on Monday that the gang visited the company on Sunday to blast the safe before making off with an undisclosed amount of cash and some gadgets.

What has been disclosed with clarity was the US$5 000 dirty harvest which they could not take with them.

“Police in Harare are investigating a case of robbery which occurred on 25 February 2024 at a financial services company along Rohester Road, Belgravia, Harare,” police said via their X handle on Monday.

“Six unknown suspects attacked a gardener before breaking into the operations manager’s office where they blasted a safe and stole undisclosed amount of cash, two small cash boxes, three laptops and a bag.

“The suspects dropped US$5 000, two laptops and a grinder at the scene.”

Police appealed for anyone with information that could lead to the suspects’ arrest to approach any of their stations and share the detail.
