Last night just before 20h00, members of our Special Operations Team were called into action by Cartrack to assist with the recovery of a white Toyota Starlet which was hijacked in Montclair by an unknown number of armed suspects.
Responding swiftly, our team headed to the last known location of the hijacked vehicle, which was tracked to the Kwamashu area.
Upon arrival, they noticed a suspicious white Toyota Starlet reversing away from the site where the hijacked vehicle was parked. The team promptly stopped this vehicle and conducted a search of the driver, uncovering a replica firearm in his possession.
Further investigations revealed that this Toyota Starlet was also hijacked, and had been taken in the Parlock, Newlands area the same evening.
Both hijacked vehicles, along with the suspect, were then transported to Kwamashu SAPS for further investigation and processing.
