A security guard who purchased a brand new R5-million Lamborghini in cash, has been labelled as the ‘dumbest thief’ yet by Twitter users.
The male is believed to have been involved in the heist which took place at OR Tambo International Airport earlier this month.
The suspect was arrested at his Blue Valley Estate in Centurion after he uploaded a selfie of his brand new multi-million rand Lambo!
Robbers dressed as police stopped a van transporting cash at the airport and made off with around R24 million in cash.
A source within the Hawks confirmed that the operation was very “slick”, saying “they went for a certain number of boxes. The robbers were assigned to look for and grab certain containers.
Twitter wasted no time reacting to the news and shared hilarious posts and memes concerning the security guard’s dumb selfie.
