A video circulating online shows individuals picking up money that was left scattered around after the robbery. It is important to note that handling stolen money is a criminal offense and anyone found in possession of such money will face legal consequences.

We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of the deceased security guard and hope that the perpetrators are swiftly brought to justice.
