South African Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Majola Nkohli said around 11.30pm, members from Visible Policing and Highway Patrol were patrolling the N2 near Makhanda, when they noticed a blue Ford bakkie driving at high speed.
They pulled the vehicle off the road and a preliminary investigation revealed that the bakkie had been stolen in Mount Road, Gqeberha. The two occupants were arrested for possession of stolen vehicle.
“Police detectives from the specialised Vehicle Identification and Safeguard Unit have taken over the investigation,” Nkohli said.
