The engine compartment of a car used in a hijacking in Kempton Park on Wednesday last week was hiding a bag with over R100,000 cash. It was found after the victim of the hijacking pointed to the Hyundai Getz during the police operation.
Chief Supt Wilfred Kgasago, spokesperson for the metro police, explained: “A hijacked Ford Ranger was tracked down to a hotel by the metro police who managed to arrest two Tanzanian male nationals.”
The victim of the hijacking noticed a Hyundai driving into the hotel premises as the vehicle that was used to hijack his Ford Ranger.
“The driver of the Hyundai Getz, on sighting the metro police, abandoned the vehicle and evaded arrest. Within the engine compartment of the Hyundai, the metro police uncovered a plastic bag laden with hard cash amounting to more than R100,000,” Kgasago said.
The investigation continues.
