Members from our VCIU were summoned to the scene and it was established that the vehicle, a silver Polo was stolen on 20 September 2018 in the Strand, Western Cape.

Further information was followed up and a second vehicle, a white Polo was recovered in Berige Street, Kwanobuhle. It was established that the white Polo was hijacked in Woodstock in August 2018. The suspects are due to appear in the Kwanobule Magistrate’s Court on Monday, 1 October 2018 on a charge of possession of suspected stolen motor vehicle.
