The suspect has been identified as Ricardo Oxurub (35).
According to a crime report, Oxurub and some colleagues booked out money from Bank Windhoek in Swakopmund to refill ATMs. They then departed to Ocean View SPAR.
Upon their arrival, Oxurub remained in the vehicle to guard the remaining cash that was intended for an Arandis ATM, while his colleagues refilled the ATM.
"When his colleagues returned to the vehicle, they found that Oxurub and the money he was supposed to be guarding, were missing," said the Erongo police regional commander for community affairs, inspector Ileni Shapumba.
The incident allegedly occurred yesterday, but a case was only opened today.
Members of the police are currently conducting a manhunt to trace the suspect and recover the money.
Individuals who know the whereabouts of the suspect or have information, are urged to contact detective chief inspector Daniel Gurirab at 081 233 3745 or detective inspector Rosa Tjihavero at 081 413 7105, or report to any police station.
