Western Cape police have recovered two trucks that were hijacked in separate incidents in Cape Town on Thursday.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said a bread delivery truck was allegedly hijacked in Harare, Cape Town, at about 10am.

The truck was found in Makhaza in Khayelitsha.

A total of 39 crates containing 388 loaves of bread were found on the premises.

“Two suspects, aged 32 and 36, were subsequently arrested for possession of presumed stolen property. Police are now trying to trace the rightful owner of the consignment of bread as well as the delivery vehicle. Both suspects will appear in Khayelitsha Magistrate’s Court as soon as they have been charged,” Rwexana said.

Rwexana said police were still trying to trace the owner of the truck.

In a separate incident in Nyanga, a hijacked delivery truck that was transporting gas cylinders was recovered on Link Road in Browns Farm.

“Officers recovered the truck within minutes after the hijacking.

“The investigation is in search of a white bakkie reported to have been used during the commission of the crime.

“The driver of the truck was so thrilled, praised the police for the quick response and saving a load of about 50 gas cylinders,” Rwexana said.
