Watch: CCTV Captures Robbers Steal Container From Clairwood Yard

A trucking company in Clairwood is appealing to the public for assistance after a brazen theft took place at their premises late last night.

The incident, captured on CCTV, shows three individuals making off with a trailer and a freight container in the early hours of Sunday morning, March 3rd, 2024.

The stolen trailer, with registration number NUR73470, was loaded with a 12-metre container marked CCLU7785469.

The container, according to the company’s owner, was filled with imported clothing.

The surveillance footage, shared by the affected company, reveals a white Volvo truck pulling the trailer and container out of the yard around 03:30 in the morning.

Three suspects are seen accompanying the truck, with two disappearing from view to the left while one closes the gate behind them.

In response to the theft, the company has announced a reward of R15,000 for any information that could lead to the recovery of the stolen trailer and its contents.

The value of the cargo has not been disclosed.
