A double success when the South African Police rural safety averted a farm attack in the Muldersdrift area and arrested hijackers operating in the area. Muldersdrift is situated in North Gauteng, South Africa.
On July 6, 2016 signs were picked up on a pending farm attack. The SAPS Rural Safety was contacted and quickly analyzed and verified the signs. Plans were made, and all were ready to pounce. Just before the incident was due to take place, suddenly things changed. The SAPS Tasks team, whilst placed at a strategic point got a ‘look out’ for three hijackers heading their way. The Task Team’s attention was diverted and the hijackers were apprehended, together with firearms and stolen vehicle. Three suspects were shot.
In the meantime, SAPS Rural Safety Members waited patiently for the farm attack to be launched. It seems that with all the activity close by it made the farm attackers think twice. The domestic worker was involved, who resigned immediately. The farm attack was averted.
The Owners of the property have not stopped singing the SAPS praises, and said SAPS were absolutely professional. Well Done to SAPS and all involved.
