An armed gang escaped with a loot of alcohol after breaking into a liquor store in Berea, Durban, on Tuesday morning.

According to police, the incident occurred at Pick n Pay Liquors at the Berea Centre about 5am. 

Police spokesperson Capt Nqobile Gwala said a group of men allegedly held the security guards at gunpoint.
