Two Diepriver car thieves arrested
27 February 2008
Two suspects have been arrested in Diepriver Wednesday afternoon after a motor vehicle was reported stolen in Muizenberg on Sunday.
This follows after two Grassy Park police sergeants spotted a red Kia Picanto with three occupants in Parkwood and tested the registration number.
“A chase followed onto the M5 where the suspects stopped and fled from the vehicle while firing shots at police members,” says Police spokesperson, Bernadine Steyn.
Steyn added that the one suspect (25) from Grassy Park and the other (34) from Diepriver were arrested while the third suspect is still at large and the firearm has not been found.
The two suspects are expected to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s court soon on charges of Attempted Murder and Possession of possible stolen property.
