Our teams managed to recover a hijacked vehicle following an incident where a female motorist was taken hostage during the hijacking last week Friday.
On Friday evening just before 20h00 members of our Special Operations Team were activated to assist Cartrack with locating a brown Audi Q5 that had been hijacked in the Clare Estate area earlier in the afternoon. The female driver had been taken hostage during the hijacking and was later dropped off in the Umlazi area, whereafter she managed to get assistance and immediately informed Cartrack and reported the hijacking to the SAPS.
Our members immediately responded to the last known location of the Audi and within minutes of being activated the vehicle was found abandoned and recovered on Acutt Avenue in the Park Hill area by members of our Special Ops Team, Cartrack ground team, and the SAPS Provincial Vehicle and Trio Task team. The vehicle was fitted with false number plates as well as a false license disc.
The scene was secured and will be investigated further by the SAPS.
