The National Crime Intelligence Structure of the Police, in coordination with personnel of the Middleburg Flying Squad, led to the arrest of two Mozambican nationals and the recovery of a suspected stolen car.
The two men were intercepted on the N4 Road near Middleburg. Reportedly, one of the men was driving a gray Lexus SUV, while there are allegations indicating that the second one was driving a white Ford Ranger bakkie. The Lexus was reported stolen in Sandton in a theft case reported on May 7.
Members of the SAPS from the Flying Squad Unit received information provided by their counterparts from National Intelligence on Friday, May 12, about a suspected stolen vehicle that was possibly heading to Mozambique.
The Lexus was intercepted at Middleburg Toll Plaza, where a 35-year-old male suspect who was driving was arrested.
