Soft job as hijackers get away with fabric softeners

The horse of the truck that was hijacked in Muldersdrift was recovered in Chloorkop with some fabric softeners.

The horse of the truck that was hijacked in Muldersdrift was recovered in Chloorkop with some fabric softeners.

The sly hijackers unhooked the trailers in Isando and abandoned the horse in Chloorkop, and disappeared with half the cargo.

It is alleged that hijackers have gotten away with fabric softeners worth hundreds of thousands of Rand, before the metro police impounded the trailers in Isando, Kempton Express reports.

Lieut Colonel Wilfred Kgasago, metro police spokesperson, said the articulated truck with two trailers transporting fabric softeners valued at R1.2 million was hijacked in Muldersdrift on Wednesday, July 20.

The sly hijackers unhooked the trailers in Isando and abandoned the horse in Chloorkop.

“Information about the hijacked truck was received by law enforcers on the same day and the horse was located in Chloorkop. The recovery was the result of a joint effort by the EMPD police,” Kgasago added.

The missing trailers were subsequently recovered the same night at around midnight in Isando, with almost half of the cargo missing.
