Alleged hijack kingpin arrested in Soweto

Sowetan Metro Police have arrested a suspected hijack kingpin in Soweto at the weekend, who has been linked to 19 hijackings and armed robberies.
Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said on Monday that two other men were also arrested while four stolen vehicles and two shotguns were recovered.
Metro policemen received a call that a white Hilux was being hijacked in Diepkloof, Soweto on Saturday night. The police followed up and found the vehicle abandoned — and then received another call of a green Audi being hijacked.
