After a short while, one of our Crime Prevention Units reported that they spotted the wanted vehicle matching the description possibly busy breaking into another vehicle in Jonker Street.

Adamantly not to lose the vehicle, they chased the vehicle at high speeds while liaising with our additional units and SAPS.

their vehicle and run into the shacks.
