Two more suspects have been arrested after intense investigation into Monday’s hijacking at the R41 and R14 crossing.

On Monday, 11 September at 1.30pm a 39-year-old man was the victim of a hijacking at the R41 and R14 crossing.

“Quick reaction by Randfontein Visible Policing members secured an arrest and the retrieval of a hijacked vehicle,” said Captain Appel Ernst, Randfontein Police spokesperson.

Ernst continued on Wednesday, “One suspect residing in Soweto and another from Krugersdorp were arrested during Monday night.”

The police members also confiscated numerous items of suspected stolen property, including car radios, reflector jackets, GPS equipment and even police items such as name tags, teargas and handcuffs. They were also found in possession of tools that are used to change engine numbers,” Captain Ernst continued.

The members are applauded for the efforts they made in the investigation.

“We believe that these arrests are a breakthrough in our hijackings. We appreciate all the effort that went into these successes” said the Randfontein Police Station commander, Brigadier Manamela.
