Three suspects arrested for hijacking a truck in Manenberg


Media Statement from Western Cape Media Centre Corporate Communication and LiaisonSouth African Police Service

Our investigations into the circumstances surrounding a hijacking of a truck in Manenberg on 29 January 2019 which landed four suspects

behind bars for being in possession of flat screen television sets, led to the arrest of the three hijackers. Members of Crime Intelligence pursued information which led them to the suspects who were responsible for hijacking the delivery truck loaded with television sets destined for the warehouse of a retail chain store. The three suspects aged 30, 33 and 40 were arrested in Khayelitsha yesterday and they are due to make a court appearance on Monday, 4 February 2019. Besides the 50 television sets confiscated earlier this week, another television set was found in the possession of one of the suspects. More televisions stolen during the hijacking are being sought.
