The vigilance of the K9 unit members attached to the Provincial Extortion Task Team led to the recovery of a hijacked delivery truck.
On Friday, 31 December 2021 at about 17:35, the members followed up information received on the whereabouts of a hijacked motor vehicle in the Philippi East area moments earlier.
The information led them to the Marikana Informal Settlement in Philippi East. Due to challenging road conditions, the members pursued the information on foot and recovered the truck abandoned in between the shacks, still intact with just the battery missing. No arrests have been made.
The vehicle, a white KIA 2.7D Truck, will be taken to the Bellville Vehicle Safeguarding Unit where it will be processed. Further investigation is pending.
