Vigilance and swift response from officers attached to Public Order Policing landed two suspects, aged 20 and 26, behind bars for possession of a hijacked vehicle, an imitation firearm and suspected stolen property.

On Wednesday evening, 28 October, officers received information about a vehicle that was hijacked in the Mfuleni area and heading in the direction of Y-Block, Khayelitsha. Officers patrolled the area and spotted the white Toyota Conquest in Aliam Drive, Khayelitsha. On seeing the marked police vehicle the suspects quickly turned into Bayana Street, but were stopped by police.

One of the suspects was found in possession of the imitation firearm as well as the cellphone and wallet of the complainant.

It was established the suspects had first hijacked an Avanza in Khayelitsha, and kidnapped the owner and put him at the back of the vehicle before driving to Mfuleni, where they hijacked the white Toyota Conquest.
