The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) K9 Unit arrested three male suspects aged 22 to 48 on Collet Drive and Oxford Road in Illovo, Sandton, for fraud, possession of car breaking implements, and possession of a signal jammer.

On Monday, August 8, 2022, officers were conducting crime prevention patrols when they received a call for backup after private security officers spotted a silver BMW X5 used by perpetrators in stealing Toyota Prados, Lexus Suvs, Toyota Fortuner, and Toyota Hilux bakkies in the Sandton area.

Officers arrived and the vehicle, which had three male occupants, was stopped. Officers discovered false registration numbers on the vehicle during an inspection. Officers searched the vehicle and discovered car-breaking tools as well as a military signal jammer.

At Bramley Police Station, all three male suspects were arrested and detained. They will appear in court when the time comes.

The vehicle used in the crime was seized and taken to the SAPS Aeroton pound for verification.

The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department's Communications Unit issued the statement.
