Major distributor of cigarettes
On 9th of February 2016 one of our client’s truck trailer rigs that was carrying cigarettes was hijacked. They contacted the Mtrack control room and requested that a recovery team be dispatched.
When the Mtrack unit went into alarm it was moving in the direction of Sunninghill. As soon as the agents saw that the vehicle was continuing to move towards Centurion, they dispatched another agent from Pretoria to intercept.
The vehicle came to a halt in Trans-Oranje, Pretoria West.
The agents sped to the scene and soon thereafter the agents reported that they had recovered the horse and trailer and the container and had made two arrests. All of the cargo was saved.
The suspects used a jammer device thus the other tracking units including Smartsurv and Netstar did not report.
SAPS on the scene took the suspects away.
Approximately R7 million.
