A Capetonian couple’s excursion was cut short when cops seized the luxury vehicle they were driving in.
According to Sowetan Live, members of the Western Cape flying were patrolling the N2 freeway in Somerset West when they spotted a silver Mercedes-Benz.
It is alleged that the car was stolen during a Camps Bay robbery earlier this month. As reported by Times Live, police spokesperson Andrè Traut, said the officers’ instincts prompted them to run a check on the registration number, which was found to be registered to a white Mercedes-Benz. “The driver was pulled over and further investigation led to the discovery that the vehicle had been stolen during a house robbery in Camps Bay earlier this month,” Traut said.
Traut added a 38 Special revolver without a serial number and five rounds of ammunition were also discovered.
The two suspects, a male and a female are expected to make a court appearance in Somerset West once they have been charged.
