An armed robbery rocked the small community of Arandis on Wednesday. Two armed men entered Nampost’s post office in the town between 09:00 and 10:00, held up the only employee on duty and fled with N$20 000 in cash.

The incident was confirmed by Nampol spokesperson, Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu.
The two suspects entered the post office pretending to mail a parcel. Incidentally, the parcel could not fit through the parcel window and the employee had to open the door to receive it.
Taking their opportunity, one of the robbers drew a handgun and overpowered the employee, forcing her into the strong room where they tied her up.
The armed robbers then stole cash to the value of N$ 20 132-25 as well as the employee’s Samsung Galaxy J2, valued at N$ 2000.
The victim later managed to free herself and alerted the Police.
At the time of going to press the armed robbers were still at large. None of the stolen items had been recovered either.
The police are requesting the public to assist in tracing the suspects.
