WESTERN CAPE – The swift reaction of the Western Cape Flying Squad, after a truck with cargo was hijacked at N1 City in Goodwood, resulted in the arrest of a suspect yesterday.
The members were alerted that a truck with household appliances was hijacked and they immediately started with an investigation and followed the signal of a tracker unit that was installed in the truck. The signal led police to a residence in Mandela Park in Khayelitsha where the truck and the stolen cargo valued at around R800 000-00 were recovered.
One suspect, a 17-year-old male was arrested. Once charged, he is expected to make a court appearance in Khayelitsha for the possession of stolen property.
