Johannesburg - Two men were taken in for questioning after stolen vehicles worth more than R1m were seized in Soweto on Tuesday, Gauteng police said.

The men, aged 28 and 42, were suspected of involvement in a syndicate that stole cars and sold them, said Colonel Lungelo Dlamini

The gang intercepted trucks transporting vehicles, removed tracking devices from the cars and then stole them.

The vehicles were falsely registered and chassis numbers were tampered with before they were sold, Dlamini said.

      The value of the car is of no importance - the crime is. Have you considered that someone may have lost their life in the process of these cars being 'acquired'?

  • Straight Forward - 2011-03-08 15:46

    Where were these cars found? Oh, in Soweto!!!! Maybe Malema is also trying to nationalize the motor industry

  • Licikityspit - 2011-03-08 16:00

    with the prices as they are these days, lamens terms they seized two cars?

  • Cynical Sci - 2011-03-08 16:03

    Given the price of cars, that can't be too many cars.

  • Cynical Sci - 2011-03-08 16:05

    Oh, if I had read the comments before posting my own, I would have avoided the similarity to other comments that ensued. Sorry guys.

    JaNoWellFine -it only happens in SA. This is why i refused to have a new tracking devise installed in my three vehicles when i changed insurance last year. How do they know where every tracking devise is ??????

    Darkies Why?

    They were only court now, with the recent theft: I lost 2 vehicles one hi-jacked in 2005 and one stolen in 2006, if you ask me the SAP is involved because nobody gets their cars back. The day of the hi-jacking the inspector said my car was the 8th car for the day!! That was 6 o'clock late afternoon with sunset.So from 2004 x 8 cars per day, hello....

  • Killroy2011 - 2011-08-29 11:17

    Big deal one car can cost more than amilloin rand today. But never the less well done SAPS keep up the good work.
