Three suspects were arrested shortly after they had stolen a Mercedes Benz from a well-known car dealership last week Saturday.
At approximately 22h00 that evening members proceeded to investigate information received by the SAPS Phoenix Trio Crimes Unit regarding a wanted Mercedes Benz, that had been stolen from a well-known car dealership in the Durban Central area by an unknown amount of suspects earlier that same evening.
After a successful joint operation, three suspects were arrested on Dodmore Road by the SAPS Phoenix Trio Crimes Unit assisted by members of our Special Operations Team and Cartrack ground team. Upon searching the vehicle and the suspects, they were found in possession of multiple other car keys which possibly belonged to the same dealership where the vehicle was stolen from.
The vehicle was severely damaged and circumstances leading to the damage caused by the suspects are currently unknown but will be investigated further by SAPS. All three suspects together with the stolen vehicle was taken back to the Phoenix Police Station for further processing and investigating.
Well done to all team members involved with yet another arrest.
