“Various tracking units and other officials had tried to stop the truck but had no success,” wrote MTRS.

“Our tracking team was activated as the vehicle entered Polokwane and we were on the road, in no time we caught up with the hijackers, managed to stop the vehicle and detain the suspects,” said MTRS.

SA Trucker contacted the owners of the truck but they could not reveal much about the case saying the case is at a very delicate stage of investigation. It’s not known if the driver has been found and whether or not he was involved in the crime.

The company thanked everyone who had shared the BOLO on social media to help find the hijacked truck.
