    KwaZulu-Natal: Three STOLEN vehicles recovered, four suspects nabbed

    The South African Police Service (SAPS) in KwaZulu-Natal has arrested three suspects they found occupying a stolen vehicle in Pietermaritzburg. Law enforcement officials from the Provincial Trio and Vehicle Task Team received information of about a vehicle that was wanted for theft in the city. They subsequently received word about the car entering the Newlands area, prompting them to spring into action.

    “Police and security officials immediately responded to the scene and the vehicle was spotted travelling on Cornfield Road in Newlands area. The vehicle was then intercepted and three males were found inside the vehicle and they were placed under arrest. It was established that the vehicle was stolen in Pietermaritzburg area. The suspects aged 32 and 39 will appear before the Durban Magistrates’ Court on charges of possession of stolen property,” said KZN SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Nqobile Gwala.


    The SAPS KZN team was still in the Newlands area, where the arrests for the stolen vehicle was made, when they spotted a suspiscious-looking vehicle travelling at a hgh speed.

    “The said vehicle was chased and intercepted. Upon searching the suspect, he was found in possession of a pistol with rounds of ammunition. The investigation revealed that the firearm was stolen in Hammarsdale during July 2021. The suspect aged 22 will appear in court tomorrow,” Gwala added.

    SAPS says two other vehicles were found abandoned in the KwaDabeka and Cato Manor areas. One of the vehicle was hijacked at Ndunduma area in Clermont while the other was hijacked in Springfield Park. Unfortunately, no arrests have been made yet in relation to that discovery, but authorities say they are still looking for the suspects.
