Johannesburg - A man was arrested in connection with the hijacking of a car fitted with a police siren, Norkem Park police said on Monday.

Captain Lesibana Molokomme said the man was arrested in Ebony Park, Midrand on Saturday.

He was found with two vehicles, a gold Passat and a silver grey Jetta, each fitted with a police siren.

The Passat was hijacked earlier this month and the Jetta was hijacked in Norkem Park last month.

Molokomme appealed to motorists who may have been victims of hijackings where police sirens were used, to contact the Norkem Park police.

The 35-year-old man was due to appear in court soon.
