According to Table View police spokesperson Captain Adriana Chandler the vehicle they were driving had been positively linked by video footage to the theft of a motor vehicle on Monday in Table View. The suspected thieves were apprehended in Erica Drive in Table View with the assistance of various armed response vehicles, neighbourhood watch members and a car hire company vehicle.

“The occupants, (who are in their 20s and 30s), looked stunned and gave their cooperation to the SAPS employees,” Captain Chandler says. Video footage positively linked the trio to the theft of the motor vehicle on Monday. Tools which are used to steal motor vehicles were also found in their possession. The suspects claimed to be from Delft, Phillippi East and Nyanga. The possibility that these suspects could be linked to other theft of motor vehicle cases will be investigated.
