Local B&B Owner Arrested For Being In Possession of Two Hijacked Vehicles

A bed and breakfast owner was arrested after our teams uncovered two hijacked vehicles that were found parked on the property in the Glen Ashley area on Monday evening.

At approximately 22h00 members of our Special Operations Team together with the Tracker ground team and the SAPS Phoenix Trio Crimes Unit proceeded to a well-known bed and breakfast in Glen Ashely, after receiving information that a wanted hijacked vehicle was parked on the property.

While conducting their investigation on the property, members found a white Mercedes Benz C200 AMG that had been hijacked in the Wentworth area in May this year. Upon questioning the owner of the B&B, the keys for the Mercedes Benz was found in his possession, however he could not provide police officers with a reasonable explanation as to how they came to possess the keys of the hijacked vehicle and was immediately arrested. 

Upon further investigation our teams found yet another hijacked vehicle on the property – a white BMW SUV that had been hijacked last year September in the Mayville area. The B&B owner was also in possession of the keys for this vehicle as well, and could again not give a reasonable explanation as to how he had obtained them.

Both vehicles together with the suspect was taken to the Durban North SAPS for further processing, where the suspect will be charged on two counts of being in possession of suspected stolen property.
