In order to fulfill the mission of SAPS by preventing and combating crime, police members responded to a tip off on 26 July 2017, which led to the arrest of five suspects who were found with possible stolen parts that were stripped from vehicles in the Siyahlala informal settlement, Nyanga.

Three of the suspects were apprehended at about 14:00, with parts stripped from a Mazda 323. Further investigation, an hour later led to two more suspects being arrested in the same area with parts stripped off an Isuzu LDV. This vehicle was reported stolen earlier this month in Milnerton.

The five suspects aged between 19 and 45 are expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrates Court today for the possession of suspected stolen property and theft of motor vehicle.
