Members of the Nyanga Crime Prevention Unit arrested three suspects on Tuesday 16 April while stripping a vehicle in Nyanga.

The members were on patrol when they spotted the three suspects busy with the vehicle at Sihlanu Avenue near Nyanga bus terminus.

When the trio saw the police approaching they acted as if they were fixing the vehicle but it was discovered that the three were stripping the white Toyota Tazz. Two front tyres, both registration plates and some parts of the engine were already removed.

When the police tested the vehicle it came out positively that it was stolen in Milnerton this month. All the residential addresses of the three suspects were also from Milnerton area. The suspects aged 34 and 34 are expected to appear in Athlone Magistrate’s Court for the possession of a stolen vehicle.
