A Rose Hill resident’s stolen vehicle was recovered within half an hour of teams being activated to locate it last night.
At 19h35 a member of the public flagged down one of our Armed Response Officers on Acutt Avenue in the Rose Hill area after noticing that his VW Polo had been stolen from outside his residence.
While circulating the details of the stolen vehicle to all our Armed Response Officers, members of our Special Operations Team were activated to assist Trackers SA with the same stolen VW Polo.
Our team members immediately responded and after a 25 minute track the stolen vehicle was recovered, in a severely stripped state, and found abandoned in the Castle Hill area in Newlands by members of our Special Operations Team, Tracker SA ground team and Durban Flying Squad. The vehicle’s numberplates had been removed and were found inside the vehicle.
The scene will be investigated and processed accordingly by the SAPS.
