WESTERN CAPE - A multi-disciplinary team acted on information following the theft of a motor vehicle from a warehouse in Montague Gardens on Thursday, 06 October 2022, which resulted in the arrest of two suspects on Tuesday 11 October 2022. 

Police members pursued information and studied visual video footage that was at their disposal. The initial intelligence driven operation led them to a residence where the members patiently observed two light delivery vehicles offloading cargo. This action paved the way for a joint operation between Crime Intelligence, Vehicle Crime Investigation Unit detectives and Bellville police on Tuesday 11 October 2022 at a local liquor outlet in Strand Road, Bellville, where they confiscated 216 boxes of beer with a total value of R600 000.

Two suspects aged 27 and 36, were arrested on a charge of possession of stolen property. The trailer with container which was reported stolen was ultimately found abandoned in Athlone.

Once charged the suspects will make a court appearance in the Bellville Magistrates court on the mentioned charge.
