Soldiers seize top-of-the-range vehicles being smuggled out of SA
An SUV submerged in the Limpopo River and six top-of-the-range vehicles that were being smuggled across the SA border into Mozambique have been recovered in the past week.
The six vehicles were intercepted by 7 SA Infantry Battalion soldiers conducting routine patrols along the border, the SANDF said.
“When they stopped the vehicles, the occupants left the cars and ran into the bushes, leaving the vehicles behind. The six recovered vehicles, Toyota Hilux double-cab bakkies and a Toyota Fortuner, were handed over to the SA Police Service for further investigation.
“The value of these cars is yet to be confirmed,” said SANDF spokesperson Siphiwe Dlamini.
