Members of the Maitland Flying Squad followed up information, and arrested four suspects for possession of stolen goods and being in possession of a hijacked truck early this morning 16 May 2023.

The members were doing high density patrols in the Manenberg precinct when they received information about a possible hijacked vehicle, which led them to the industrial area in Vygieskraal Road, Manenberg. As they drove down Steenbras Road they spotted a Scania truck with a registration number that was reported as hijacked in Maitland.

The truck was approached and three men aged 23 to 30 and a 42-year-old woman were arrested for being in possession of the hijacked vehicle and stolen property. The truck and cargo were confiscated. The suspects are scheduled to appear in court once charged.
