Police Minister Bheki Cele says there has been more than a 60% reduction in the number of cash-in-transit heists since the announcement of the so-called stabilisation campaign used to crack down on aggravated robberies, two months ago.
The Saps has made major strides by clamping down on networks with the arrest of 42 suspects, including a man believed to be a kingpin.
Cele held a briefing in Tembisa on Thursday.
Eyewitness News reporter Barry Bateman has more on the story.
