Philippi-East: In order to prevent and combat crime that may threaten the safety and security of the community, vigilant police members on patrol arrested a suspect for the possession of stolen motor vehicle in Lower Cross Roads this morning.

The 47-year-old man from Brown’s Farm, Nyanga was arrested after police members on patrol randomly tested the vehicle for ownership.

It was positively linked to a carjacking case that happened during October 2020 in the Lwandle area.

The suspect is currently in detention and will appear in court once charged.
