Transport subcontractor for major liquor company
At approximately 04:00 two truck trailer combinations from company X Transport were hijacked near Cornelia in the Free State.
On both the loads there were Mtrack asset protection units. Two positions were received from the units at Heidelberg and Roodekop. Agents recovered both loads within an hour of being stolen.
A third truck (MAN) that was stolen 2 months earlier in Parys and which was used
in the hijacking was also recovered.
During the operation, three suspects were arrested and two 9mm firearms confiscated.
The following day during follow up operations, another two suspects were arrested and a Fodin truck seized. Both suspects were part of the syndicate that had been investigated and the truck had been used on various occasions to move hijacked trailers and goods.
The client sent a letter of thanks, saying
“This incident is living proof that the unit that you have provided us with is of good quality and together with the Revert assistance in tracing the unit and keeping us appraised at all times of exactly where our product was at any time, must be commended…. the Mtrack technology from ETS played a huge role in cracking this syndicate”
A total of 13 suspects were taken into custody. Hijacked goods to the value of approximately R7,000,000 were recovered, as well as all vehicles.
