Man with suspected stolen cars used for attempted robbery arrested



A man from Malanshof, Randburg has been arrested by Hawks on Thursday after he was nabbed with suspected stolen vehicles.

The suspected stolen vehicles were repotedly involved in an attempted cash-in-transit robbery.

According to Hawks spokesperson, Capt Ndivhuwo Mulamu, officers followed up when information got to them about a possible lead on an attempted cash-in-transit robbery in Florida earlier in the day.

“Two vehicles, a Ford Focus and an Audi, fitting the description of the vehicles alleged to have been involved in an attempted cash-in-transit robbery during the day, were identified in a yard in Malanshof.”

She confirmed that one of the vehicles was reported to have been hijacked in Douglasdale in October last year and the other in Sunnyside, Pretoria, last month.

Mulamu said the vehicles’ keys were found with the suspect which immediately led to his arrest.

The 52 year-old man is expected to make his first appearance in the Randburg magistrate’s court on Monday.
