Cellphone stock was stolen during the hijacking.


A Ram courier vehicle has been recovered by authorities in Honeydew, north Johannesburg, after its occupants were allegedly hijacked at a shopping centre in Zandspruit earlier on Tuesday, the Roodepoort Northsider reports.

The occupants of the vehicle were found in a distressed state on the corner of Cypress and Peter roads by BCI Security personnel, who formed part of a patrolling unit during a heated protest on Beyers Naudé Drive this morning.

According to Rudi Holtzhausen from BCI, suspects accosted the driver at the scene where the vehicle was found and took all the cellphone stock that was being transported by the courier company.
