According to a SAPS statement, SAPS members recovered two delivery trucks after they were hijacked in Nyanga and Harare respectively on Thursday morning.
Harare police responded to information received from members of the community. The information given said a bread delivery truck was allegedly hijacked around 10:00 in the area. Police rushed to an address in Makhaza, Khayelitsha. Upon their arrival, they found 39 crates which contained 388 loaves of bread stored on the premises.
Two suspects aged 32 and 36 have since been arrested for possession of supposed stolen property. Both suspects will appear in Khayelitsha court after they have been charged.
Police are currently trying to trace the lawful owner of the shipment of bread as well as the delivery vehicle.
In Nyanga, police quickly responded and recovered a hijacked delivery truck that was transporting gas cylinders on Link Road in Browns Farm. Members who are part of the Nyanga crime prevention unit were attending to a different scene when they were made aware of the hijacking.
Police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said, “they recovered the truck within minutes after the hijacking. The investigation unit is currently in search of a white bakkie reported to have been used during the commission of the crime”
Rwexana concluded, saying, “the SAPS management has applauded members for the quick response thereby recovering the hijacked vehicles and stolen goods.”
