Durban - Five men who had allegedly been conducting a spate of hijackings in the Reservoir Hills suburb were arrested on Monday night.
Sydenham police said the hijackers had been driving around the area in a silver grey Toyota Corolla but were evading police patrols on several occasions.
Police claim the gang were involved in three known carjackings in Reservoir Hills in the last week alone.
Police said the vehicle was picked up by Automatic Vehicle Identification by Plate Recognition cameras after each of the hijackings.
The cameras were installed by ratepayers to curb crime in the area.
