Truck hijacking syndicate nabbed

On Tuesday 5 October, Fidelity was alerted to a truck hijacking on Olifants Road in Tembisa.

The truck had allegedly been hijacked by an unmarked white vehicle with blue lights near the Tembisa Mall. Fidelity’s Specialist Intervention Unit were immediately called in to assist with the recovery.

On arrival, they found SAPS and other security members standing with the truck that was still idling. The trailer legs had already been dropped in preparation for the horse to be interchanged so it was clear the suspects were after the load on board.

According to Wahl Bartmann, Chief Executive Officer of Fidelity Services Group, whilst on the scene, the Fidelity team noted a truck driving out from the mall-side of the road. The truck was intercepted with two potential suspects. Bartmann says when the truck was searched, a signal jammer with a car battery was found as well as gloves, a reflective jacket and overall jacket and a firearm and selection of cellphones.

Both suspects were detained, and the suspect’s truck and a silver Honda Jazz were taken to the pound in Benoni. On further investigation, these vehicles were found to be linked to at least one more hijacking that occurred on the 4 October in Kempton Park.

“I would like to commend all parties involved in the apprehension of these suspects. Collaboration is the key to putting these criminals behind bars and our thanks go to everyone who collaborated to make this recovery such a success,” concludes Bartmann.
