At 7:51 this morning our team were alerted that the Toyota Fortuner who has been responsible for remote jamming and thefts out of motor vehicles was spotted on CR Swart Rd in Wilropark.
Security companies started chasing the vehicle and were relaying information to other security companies for backup.
Our TRT team with our PRO made their way to the locations to try and block the suspects vehicle.
The vehicle was being persued on Christian deWet Rd by our PRO when he got stuck crossing Ontdekkers Rd towards Florida Park.
The Fortuner then caused a massive accident and sustained severe damage to the left hand side. Unfortunately, even with a damaged vehicle he managed to escape. Our PRO & new TRT member then started searching for the suspects.
We were alerted by Cst Mongwe from Florida SAPS Vehicle FD108 that he had recovered the Fortuner at an address in Florida Park.
The suspects had abandoned the Fortuner and managed to hijack a Blue Nissan 1400 Bakkie.
A massive search was undertaken by all the security companies that responded to assist.
The Blue Nissan 1400 Bakkie was recovered close to Florida Park High School.
In a bizarre twist a Reaction Officer from Hyperion Security approached a BCI Manager and said that the Nissan 1400 that was hijacked was a vehicle that was sought for theft from Makro earlier in the year.
BCI contacted the Manager at Makro Strubensvalley and he sent through the details including the case numbers for the theft.
The hijacking victim who then became a suspect was arrested by SAPS Flying Squad members and taken to Florida Police Station for further questioning.
Well done to all the security companies that responded to assist with the Toyota Fortuner.
It just goes to show that with cooperation and teamwork by all the Security companies we have a chance to fight back!!
