Harrismith: Police in Harrismith are looking for the suspect after a new modus operandi of theft of motor of vehicles was identified in the area. It is alleged that in most cases, the suspect will pretend to be a mechanic.
He will then ask vehicle owners what wrong with their car, thereafter request to take if for a test drive. Immediately when you give him a car to test, he drives off and never returns.
The suspect (identikit set as featured image) is mostly speaking IsiZulu and frequently operates in Harrismith area. So far; four cases have been reported.
Communities in Harrismith and neighbouring areas are warned about this new method that the suspect is using to steal cars.
Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect on the attached identikit is requested to contact Warrant Officer Daniel Lebuso Motaung of Phuthaditjhaba Vehicle Crime Investigation Unit on 079 520 4310 or can provide information anonymously on my MySAPS app.
