Hijacking suspects arrested

Five men arrested after botched hijacking.

"Five male suspects aged between 25-40 years were arrested on the R43 road in Hermanus at about 12:00 Thursday", says sergeant Mazuthu from Hermanus SAPS.

The arrests came after they drove into a police vehicle. 

"It is alleged that suspects hijacked the cigarette delivery truck in Zwelihle, Hermanus and took to Hemel and Aarde Valley where they would offload the cigarettes to another vehicle.

"The police swiftly responded to the complaint when they spotted a Silver Opel Corsa that was involved in the hijacking. The vehicle was forced to pull off and five suspects were arrested and undisclosed amount of cash and two boxes of cigarettes were recovered in possession of the suspects."


Police are investigating cases of hijacking, armed robbery and reckless and negligent driving.
