“On receiving signals that the vehicle’s tracker was activated and taken without the owner’s permission, the vehicle tracking company alerted the metro police, who via the GPS coordinates provided, were able to trace the vehicle to Khuzwayo Street at Spruitview in Germiston.

“The vehicle was found abandoned with its ignition damaged and the interior stripped. The recovered Toyota Fortuner was towed to SAPS Van Ryn pound in Benoni for further investigations and safe-keeping,”said Kgasago.
