On Tuesday, 8 July 2014, Mr Jemal Mohammed, a 33 year old male appeared in the Johannesburg Magistrate court, after he was arrested for the Possession of Stolen Property.
Mr Mohammed was arrested at a warehouse in Mayfair after police followed up information on a truck robbery that happened in Meyerton in May 2014. Information led the detectives, attached to the Gauteng Provincial War Room, to warehouses in Mayfair and Bramley. Stolen goods worth more than R500 000- were recovered during the search and seizure operations. The goods included groceries, baby nappies, fridges and stoves.
Investigations are underway as to establish whether the suspect can be linked to other truck hijackings in and around the province. The case was postponed and the suspect was remanded in custody until Tuesday, 15 July 2014. Further charges of Truck Hijacking might be added as investigations into the matter continues.
