Two Chinese nationals arrested for stealing R600k liquor and motor vehicle
Western Cape police arrested two Chinese Nationals, aged 27 and 36, on Tuesday, for being in possession of stolen property.
The police’s Wesley Twigg said officers acted on information following the theft of a motor vehicle from a warehouse in Montague Gardens, last Thursday.
‘’Police members pursued information and studied visual video footage that was at their disposal. The initial intelligence driven operation led them to a residence where the members patiently observed two light delivery vehicles offloading cargo.
‘’This action paved the way for a joint operation between Crime Intelligence, Vehicle Crime Investigation Unit detectives and Bellville police on Tuesday 11 October 2022 at a local liquor outlet in Strand Road, Bellville, where they confiscated 216 boxes of beer with a total value of R600 000,’’ said Sergeant Wesley Twigg.
Twigg said the trailer with the container, which was reported stolen, was found abandoned in Athlone. The duo will appear in the Bellville Magistrates court soon on the mentioned charge.
