CAPE TOWN - A cash-in-transit company has offered a R500,000 reward after an employee was shot dead during a heist.

On Monday, four armed men robbed a cash-in-transit van at the Caltex garage in Ravensmead.

SBV Services is hoping someone will come forward with information that could lead to arrests.

The company says it's deeply saddened by the murder and has vowed to do everything possible to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice.

SBV is also working with police on the investigation.

At the same time, the Ravensmead Community Policing Forum has suggested police officers escort cash-in-transit vans through the area.
