Durban - A Toyota Etios was found stripped and its doors removed hours after it was hijacked in Sydenham.

Marshall Security managing director Tyron Powell said even the doors had been removed from a vehicle by the time it was recovered, only hours after it had been hijacked in Sydenham on Tuesday.

Powell said that at about 8.15pm on Tuesday evening, members of the Marshall Security Special Operations Team were activated to assist Cartrack with a hijacked Toyota Etios, which had been taken in the Sydenham area earlier in the evening.

“Members of our Special Operations Team responded to the scene and recovered the hijacked vehicle, which was found abandoned 10 minutes after the vehicle tracking device has been activated, in the Avoca Hills area, together with the Cartrack ground team,” Powell said.

“The hijacked vehicle was found severely stripped – even the doors of the vehicle had been removed.”

Powell added that the scene was secured and handed over to the SAPS for further processing and investigation.

Police had not commented by the time of publication.
