Police are searching for three men who robbed at least two Helderberg filling stations on Monday morning.

Two armed men cornered cash van guards at a BP garage in Strand at 7:30am before fleeing the scene with more than R120,000.

A little later, a man robbed an Engen filling station in Macassar.

It is understood he forced the owner, at gunpoint, to handover cash.

The police's Andre Traut said, “The men fled with the cash and hijacked a vehicle outside the garage. The vehicle was then spotted by police on the N2 Highway.  A high speed chase then ensured before the suspects abandoned the vehicle in Khayelitsha. They fled on foot.”
