Two policemen were robbed of their firearms and seized goods taken from a
strongroom at OR Tambo International Airport.

Spokesperson Captain Dennis Adriao on Wednesday said the two were held up by
six men impersonating police officers while on their way home at about 5pm
on Tuesday.

"The officers were pulled over by three vehicles with blue lights and
sirens, with the six armed with R-5 rifles and wearing civilian clothes.
They disarmed the policemen and took their office keys."

Adriao said some of the robbers held the officers hostage while others drove
to the airport's admin building, where they used the keys to get into the
office and a secure police exhibit-holding facility, he said.
