Johannesburg - Three scrapyard mechanics were arrested after they had been found in possession of stolen cars and parts in Makhado, Limpopo police said on Sunday.

The three were arrested on Saturday at a scrapyard dubbed the "BMW Specialist", Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

"Seven BMW vehicles whose value is estimated to be several millions of rands which were reported stolen in Sandton, Pinetown, Meadowlands, Cape Town Central, Durban Central, as well as Mamelodi East, were found at the scrapyard with engines and other parts removed.

"BMW vehicle doors which were reported stolen at Florida, Themba and Kroonstad were also recovered. Over 50 BMW engines were found on the premises."

Police were searching for the scrapyard's owner, who was allegedly on the run. The men would appear in the Makhado Magistrate's Court soon.
