“The driver was held hostage while the suspects were looking for the tracking device. The victim was then dropped at Azalea Cemetery at 8pm where he then made his way to Plessislaer SAPS to report the hijacking,” Magma Security and Investigations said.
“The vehicle was then tracked to the Sweetwaters area where it was recovered by members of Magma and MI7.”
