HLANGANANI- The police in Hlanganani have arrested a 26-year-old suspect for the possession of suspected stolen property after he was found in possession of sixteen (16) Vodacom Tower batteries worth approximately R160 000 in the early hours of today.


Police were acting on a tip-off about suspected theft which was taking place at the Vodacom's Masakona Tower. When the police arrived at the scene they spotted a white bakkie branded with the name of a protection and armed response company. The said vehicle was instructed to stop but the driver defied police's orders and sped off. A chase ensued until the vehicle was cornered at Hlanganani RDP section. 


Upon searching the vehicle the police found seven batteries stashed in the bakkie. Preliminary investigations led the police back to the Masakona Tower where they found nine more batteries hidden adjacent to the scene.


The suspect will appear before the Tiyani Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
