Update: Vehicles to the tune of R4.7 million recovered by police in Ladysmith

Two days after the Ladysmith Show (Monday, May 8), municipal workers at the show grounds saw two huge trucks loaded with Fiat bakkies. The vehicles were dropped off at the Indoor Sports Complex.

As the truck drivers quickly made their way into the complex, they damaged the gates in the process.

After off-loading the bakkies, the truck drivers fled. The vehicles were abandoned at the complex, later to be identified by police.

The vehicles consist of six 4×4’s and six 2×4’s, which were ordered from a vehicle manufacturer during March this year. The vehicles are worth about R4.7 million.

At this time, no arrests have been made.
