Police Stopped a truck in Jeppestown and what they found hidden at the back is very sh0cking

Eight people have been caught by the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) undercover agents after a truck was stopped and R1 million worth of stolen copper cables were discovered buried at the rear.

Following the publication of a report by the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department News, IIOC Undercover officers from the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) were informed on Thursday, April 28, 2022, that they were to be on the lookout for a truck suspected of trafficking stolen copper wires.

Officers from the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) came across the suspected truck and escort vehicle at the intersection of Commissioner and John Paige Streets in Jeppestown and arrested the driver (Gauteng Province). Following a traffic stop, officers conducted a search of both vehicles, during which they recovered stolen copper wires worth around R1 million. Telkom is considered to be the owner of the copper cables in question.

A total of eight people have been brought into jail on suspicion of being in possession of stolen items; they will appear in court to defend themselves against the charges immediately after being taken into custody.
