High-speed chase retrieves car after Camps Bay hijacking

Cape Town – Police officers have recovered a hijacked vehicle and two other stolen vehicles following a traffic operation along the Atlantic Seaboard. The operation along the Atlantic Seaboard, which is one of several in the past week, netted 131 suspects. The City’s Traffic Services also issued 8 299 fines for various offences. Safety and Security Mayco member JP Smith said traffic officers were alerted to the hijacking of a Ford ST in Camps Bay on Sunday. “The vehicle was spotted in Sea Point and a high-speed chase ensued all the way to Salt River, where the suspects abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot,” he said. The City s Metro Police Department also recovered two more stolen vehicles during their operations last week. “On November 14, officers recovered a stolen motorcycle at a vehicle checkpoint in Salt River and arrested two suspects, aged 36 and 48. On November 13, the Metro Police Camera Response Unit helped a tracking company recover a stolen panel van in Kuils River. A 23-year-old suspect was arrested in that incident,” said Smith. Of those arrested, 120 were motorists caught driving under the influence of alcohol at various roadblocks across the metropole. Staff Writer
