On Wednesday 29 July 2015 a lookout was issued for a Toyota Hilux which had been stolen in Arcadia, Pretoria.
SAPS units spotted the stolen Hilux which was being escorted by two black VW Polo m/v’s. The suspicious vehicles split up and sped off, pursued by police units, including a police helicopter.
The one black Polo collided with three private cars and a police vehicle in the Pretoria CBD, appropriately in front of the prison, and two suspects were arrested.
The other two vehicles, the Hilux and Polo, were seized after the driver of the Hilux lost control over the vehicle.
Those two suspects tried to flee on foot, but were apprehended by the Soshanguve K9 Unit and Laudium SAPS. Four suspects are now in custody, three vehicles recovered and car breaking implements and jammers seized.
The four will appear in court tomorrow.
Well done to all police units and to Tracker SA for their assistance and photos.
