Yesterday afternoon our teams managed to successfully recover one stolen vehicle and one hijacked vehicle.
At approximately 14h30 members of our Special Operations Team noticed a white Mahindra bakkie travelling on Umhlanga Rocks Drive in the Durban North area that had been reported as stolen in the Durban Central area.
Durban North SAPS were informed and arrived to assist in pulling the vehicle over where one suspect was immediately apprehended. The stolen vehicle together with the suspect were transported to Durban North SAPS where the suspect was charged for being in possession of a suspected stolen vehicle.
Well done to our team members and the Durban North Rapid Response Unit on a successful arrest.
Later in the day, at approximately 16h00 members of our Special Ops Team where activated to assist the C Track and Bidtrack ground teams with a hijacked Toyota Hilux that had been taken in the Kwamashu area by an unknown amount of armed suspects.
