Umbilo motor licensing office's safe bombed
Durban - Hundreds of people were turned away from the KwaZulu-Natal Transport Licensing offices in Umbilo on Tuesday after robbers allegedly bombed the cash safe at the premises.
It was unclear early on Tuesday if any money was taken during the raid.
Also sketchy was when the bombing occured and how many people were involved.
When the Daily News arrived at the scene early on Tuesday morning, staff members had gathered in the parking lot while six private security guards manned the front gates.
The guards told people to go to other license centres in Durban as the offices were closed.
Police was on the scene investigating the incident.
Members of the police's K9 Unit were seen entering the building. Detectives were on scene combing the area for clues.
Mluleki Mntungwa, the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Transport spokesperson, said they were waiting for a full report to be given to them. He said police were investigating the incident.
"Once the police have completed their investigation at the crime scene the offices will then re-open to the public. The offices are expected to be fully operational on Wednesday," he said.
