Three suspects were arrested after a hijacked vehicle was recovered on the M19 off ramp close to Swartkops.

This followed after members of the Motherwell Operational Command Centre spotted a suspicious silver Tata Indica driving on the M17 road towards Swartkops. They pursued the vehicle and instructed the driver to stop at the M19 off ramp after realising the vehicle had a false number plate in front.

On further investigation it was discovered that the Tata was hijacked in Humewood area on 1 March 2018. The false number plate belonged to a blue VW Golf that was stolen during July 2015 in Kwazakele.

All three occupants, two males aged 33 and 38, and a female aged 20 were arrested for the possession of a hijacked vehicle.

They will appear before the Motherwell Magistrates Court on Wednesday 7 March.
