Harare police station officers had their hands full on Friday after a delivery truck was allegedly hijacked in Block 37 in Makhaza.

About five suspects ordered the driver and his assistant to drive to an unknown location.

On arrival at a certain spot, they allegedly off-loaded all the goods into another vehicle and locked them at the back of the delivery truck and drove off.

Police spokesman Siyabulela Vukubi said later on the same day the investigating officer received information that the goods were stored at a particular address in 55 Section in Kuyasa.

“On arrival at the premises, we could not gain access as it was locked. After gaining forced entry, we recovered all the stolen goods, estimated at R80.000.00,” he said.

Vukubi said there were no arrests yet at this stage, but they were following all possible leads.

“Police are doing their best to apprehend the culprits. We urge the community to be on the lookout for any suspicious activities in their residential areas and immediately report these to their local police,” he said.

.Meanwhile, the police are still looking for one man who was involved in the robbery of two people who were on their way to the Kuyasa train station on Sunday morning. The two suspects robbed them of their handbags at gunpoint. Outstanding work by the police led to the arrest of one of the suspects on Sunday at 21:00.

Police recovered the handbag that belonged to one of the victims at his house containing her belongings such as ID’s, bank and shopping cards as well as 15 cellphones that police believed were robbed.
