CCTV footage has emerged showing a man stealing a bakkie at a parking lot of a popular restaurant in Krugersdorp, on the West Rand.
In the footage captured on Saturday, the suspect is seen sitting next to the bakkie before climbing into the vehicle through an open the back window.
The man then climbed inside the bakkie and drove off.
The owners of the restaurant quickly called for backup from the Sector 4 CPF members who saw patrollers react immediately in search of the vehicle.
With the help of a tracking company, both the stolen vehicle and the getaway car were recovered in the Roodepoort area.
The vehicle was found abandoned close to the stolen bakkie as the suspects fled by foot.
The getaway car has since been impounded by police for further investigation.
In a separate incident, CCTV footage shows two armed robbers stealing a van in 79 seconds at Action Ford Dealership in Krugersdorp, on the West Rand.
In the footage, a silver Audi is seen dropping off the two suspects at the entrance of the dealership last year.
The two suspects are then seen approaching the guardhouse, where they point their guns at the guard and demand the keys to a vehicle.
Meanwhile, the suspect’s vehicle disappears from the scene, and one of the suspects is seen going to a vehicle while the other keeps the guard in the guardhouse at gunpoint.
Shortly afterwards, a white Ford Transit van is seen driving towards the entrance, where the suspects then drive off in the vehicle they stole.
