Two caught stealing truck

Two caught stealing truckTwo suspects were caught red-handed in Mamelodi, north-east of Pretoria, this morning while they were stealing a truck carrying a load of processed meat. The suspects were in the middle of removing a Ctrack vehicle tracking unit from the truck, when the Ctrack recovery team arrived on scene and apprehended them.

At approximately 08:15, Ctrack received a tamper alarm on the unit fitted inside the truck. After not getting hold of the client, they immediately dispatched a recovery team to the unit’s GPS coordinates. Minutes later, they arrived on scene and caught the suspects
inside the truck where they were busy stripping the unit. The suspects were arrested and handed over to the police.

The truck’s owner later confirmed that one of the suspects was an employee.

“Ctrack never takes incidents of battery tampers lightly, as this is most often a clear sign that a vehicle is being stolen or hijacked. We wish to reaffirm our unwavering commitment to protect our customers and their assets to the utmost,” said Pierre Bruwer, MD of Ctrack SA.
