LEPHALALE — A white Toyota Hilux single cab bakkie was stolen during Saturday night/Sunday morning from a workshop outside Lephalale where it was in for repair. According to warrant officer Frans Mokoena, Lephalale SAPS spokesperson, the registration number of the bakkie is DFH 153 L.
Mokoena says the insurance company informed the owner of the vehicle that although it was reported to them to be at a workshop, they were surprised to see that the vehicle was moving.
The tracking system lost signal of the bakkie at 04:00 on Sunday morning, but it was recovered in Marapong later on Sunday but was damaged. It seems that the driver lost control of the vehicle and was in an accident.
Mokoena says the suspect was nowhere to be found. The hospital and clinics were contacted for information as the suspect might be injured, but to no avail.
The case is being investigated.
