It’s amazing what hijackers have done to a Kia bakkie that belonged to a Lotusville resident. The vehicle had been stolen and then was recovered. But it can hardly be called a vehicle anymore as it was found literally in pieces in Amawothi.
A carpet of tools and fasteners scattered around an almost empty chassis was found on the scene. The bakkie’s cab, bin, bumper, doors, and seats were also discovered nearby.
The reports say the Kia K2700 was reportedly stolen in Sew Drive in Lotusville, Verulam, KwaZulu-Natal.
“The bakkie was fitted with a tracking device from and began emitting signals between the Phoenix and Verulam area,” Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) spokesperson Prem Balram stated.
The stolen car was found on a property in Amawothi by the Reaction Unit South Africa and the SAPS K9 Search and Rescue Unit after they had received the signal.
According to the police officials, the suspects managed to flee prior to the arrival of the first responders.
Look what was left of the stolen bakkie!
