Police spokesperson, Constable Matome Tlamela said the driver and his crew were stopped by the officers who ordered them to get out of the truck.

"The driver was ordered to produce a driver's licence and instructed to get into a white Toyota Corolla that was parked next to the road. The victims were dropped off at Irene Mall, Centurion where they managed to call their office for assistance," said Tlamela.

The truck loaded with laptops was recovered in Putfontein, Benoni and the suspects were arrested later that day.

"The arrested suspects, some of whom were police officers, will appear in court facing charges of truck hijacking," said Tlamela.
