Botshabelo: On the 23 November 2020, Selosesha Tactical Response Team (TRT) arrested two males after they received information about a hijacked truck in Botshabelo.
It is alleged that the truck which belongs to a Chinese businessman, was hijacked whilst on its way from Bloemfontein on the N8 road between Botshabelo and Thaba Nchu, carrying groceries worth an estimated R270 000.
The owner of the truck reported the truck missing after he could not get hold of the driver and his crew. Through the help of the vehicle tracking company, the truck was traced to Botshabelo; Section H.
Selosesha TRT members working together with the tracking company, found the suspects busy offloading the truck. The two foreigners; aged 35 and 32, were arrested and charged with truck hijacking.
The suspects will appear in the Botshabelo Magistrate court soon for truck hijacking and for violating the immigration act.
