Bloemfontein: A chop shop discovered and four suspects aged between 29 and 49 were arrested. They will make their first Court appearance in the Bloemfontein Magistrate court soon.

On Monday; 20 September 2021, Parkweg Trio Task Team traced and arrested two suspects in the early hours of Tuesday. This came after Parkweg Police received complaints about gate motors being stolen from properties.

Further investigations led the team to a house in Thambo Square where two more suspects were found busy stripping the stolen loot. Gate motors, brackets and accessories to the value of +/-R26 000.00 were found and the two were also arrested.

It is alleged that suspects targeted suburbs in Bloemfontein and would steal the property either during the night or in the early hours of the morning.

The four were detained and will be charged with possession of suspected stolen goods and theft of gate motors.
