Police officers in Sasolburg were alerted by a security guard at the Sasolburg Boulevard Mall about a stolen Toyota Yaris spotted at a drive-through food restaurant. The officers, who had just finished their off-duty high-density operations, promptly pulled over the vehicle and engaged with the driver, a 50-year-old man.
However, the driver failed to provide satisfactory information regarding his possession of the vehicle and did not possess a valid driver’s license.
Upon searching the vehicle, the officers discovered evidence linking it to a kidnapping that took place in Kempton Park in January 2023. The victim, a 25-year-old woman, had been forcibly taken from her home at gunpoint but was eventually released unharmed. The suspect was subsequently apprehended and charged with possession of a stolen vehicle. Authorities are currently investigating the suspect’s involvement in both the vehicle theft and the kidnapping.
