Car thieves held as cops raid chop shop

Just one week after a vehicle theft kingpin was arrested in Hanover Park, police made two more arrests in a string operation on a Brown’s Farm chop shop this week.

Two men, aged 34 and 36, were arrested yesterday after police obtained a search warrant for premises in Monwood Road, Philippi.

“The premises were entered into and police received 10 stolen vehicles, three engines, four Mazda loading bins and other mechanical equipment,” says police spokesperson Bernadine Steyn.

“The two suspects were arrested for possession of possible stolen property,” says Steyn.

The two men are expected to appear in the Philippi Magistrates Court tomorrow.

Prior to these arrests, investigations led police to Isgaan Adams, described by police as a kingpin who was arrested at his house last week.

“The 24 year-old was charged on six cases, five charges of theft of motor vehicles that occurred between March 2002 and October 2005 in Kirstenhof, Cape Town central, Camps Bay, Claremont and Grassy Park,” says Steyn

Adams appeared in the Wynberg Regional Court on Friday and the case was postponed to July 30.
