Police in Oshoek Port of Entry recovered a Porsche Cayenne GTS SUV that was
reportedly purchased through the submission of fraudulent documents. The recovery
was made on Tuesday 27 June 2023.
The police were executing their responsibilities at the border, according to the report,
when a white Porsche with Gauteng registration number plates arrived intending to
enter the Kingdom of Eswatini. A woman who is originating from the mentioned
neighbouring country was operating the SUV.
Members reportedly conducted some verification on the vehicle intending to check if the
car was not stolen. It was during this time that members discovered that the vehicle was
reported stolen under false pretence in Klerksdorp (Gauteng Province) last month (May
2023). On further investigation, the members unearthed that the vehicle was initially
belonging to a car dealer in Krugersdorp and somehow when it was sold, false
documentation was presented for processing. Another thing that was picked up in the
preliminary investigation, was that the vehicle was currently belonging to a Financial
Institution which financed the purchase.
Thus far an enquiry has been opened after it was established that something sinister is
ongoing concerning this vehicle. The shenanigans were only discovered at the border
by the men and women in Blue.
However, the vehicle, which has a value of roughly R600 000, has been seized for
additional examination. The investigation and all of its findings, together with some
additional evidence acquired, will be forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecution for
a decision even though the driver has not yet been detained. The Police are still looking
into the matter to track down the defendants and make arrests.
