Johannesburg - Police in Krugersdorp and Muldersdrift were on Sunday morning searching for three hijackers dressed as police officers.

Lieutenant-Colonel Katlego Mogale said the three abandonded their Audi S3 after hitting a speed bump on the R540 Krugersdorp at high speed on Saturday.

It had been hijacked in Olivienhoutbosch last month and had been fitted with blue lights and a siren.

The three then flagged down a bakkie belonging to a nearby nature reserve and forced the driver at gunpoint to drive them from the scene.

Minutes later they abandonded the bakkie on the M5 in Muldersdrift and hijacked a white Hyandai Tucson, which they also abandonded, leaving a handheld radio inside.
