Police have confirmed there's been a major breakthrough in the OR Tambo International Airport heist. A group of robbers disguised as police stole millions of rand in foreign currency in a recent heist at the airport.

He is the fifth suspect to have been picked up since the March 7 raid when fake officers, travelling in a police vehicle with flashing flights, confronted security guards transporting containers of cash onto the tarmac.

Spokesman for the Hawks, South Africa's elite investigations unit who are probing the operation, yesterday refused to confirm the arrest of the main suspect. "I've seen some pictures on social media".

According to information, the people in the photo are policeman and not suspects as reported.

One serving policeman is among five who have been picked up for the brazen robbery two weeks ago, during which not a single shot was sacked - prompting wide speculation of "an inside job". Phahlane said that investigators had not ruled out the possibility that the robbery was an "inside job" orchestrated with the help of police officers.

The arrests and seizure of the Lamborghini have been the source of speculation and mirth on social media, with allegations that the arrests of the five at the weekend followed one of the accused posting a photo of the auto online.

Social media users in South Africa have mocked the suspect's apparent carelessness in posting pictures of the luxury vehicle, while others have queried whether the owner had purchased the vehicle long before the heist.
