Rapid Response Leads to Two Vehicle Recoveries and a Successful Arrest

This morning at approximately 03h30, the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre was alerted to a theft of a motor vehicle on Jain Road in the Effingham Heights area. Where an unknown number of suspects had forcibly opened the homeowner’s gate and stolen a silver Toyota RunX.

Efforts were then made to make contact with the homeowner however efforts were unsuccessful.

Initial attempts to contact the homeowner were unsuccessful, however, by 07:30, communication was established. It was then confirmed that the stolen vehicle was equipped with a Tracker SA tracking device.

Promptly coordinating with Tracker SA, our Special Operations Team immediately responded and after a lengthy track the vehicle was located in the Matabetule area near the Inanda Dam. During the recovery operation, a suspect was seen fleeing from the vehicle but was swiftly apprehended after a short foot chase, thanks to the combined efforts of Tracker SA’s ground team and Greenwood Park SAPS Trio Crimes Unit.

Further investigations led to the discovery of a red Toyota Etios parked nearby the recovered Toyota RunX. A check of the vehicle’s VIN revealed it had been stolen from the Midrand area in Gauteng in October 2018.

Both stolen vehicles, along with the apprehended suspect, were transported to Greenwood Park SAPS for further investigations and processing. This incident underscores the effectiveness of collaboration between security teams and tracking technology in combating vehicle theft.

At Marshall Security, we pride ourselves on going above and beyond for the entire community, swiftly responding and assisting where we can.
