Yesterday, Friday 23 December 2016, the Provincial Commissioner spotted a vehicle being smuggled across the Limpopo River between South Africa and Zimbabwe while he was in the police helicopter.
The unusual aspect of this crime, was that the suspects were using donkeys to tow the vehicle across the river!
On noticing the police helicopter, the suspects abandoned the vehicle and the donkeys and fled.
After a four-hour operation yesterday, the police recovered the vehicle from the river and discovered that it had been stolen in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.
The donkeys were unharmed and wandered off.
