Two weeks after a man from Diepkloof in Johannesburg, South Africa was arrested after he was found in possession of a suspected stolen Toyota Fortuner at the Dibete Barrier Gate, another South African man has been arrested in possession of suspected stolen Toyota Cross at the same spot.

The 22-year-old man of Block m02 Atteridgeville hostels arrived at the gate around 08:50hrs Saturday morning driving South African registered silver Toyota Cross, which he failed to account for when questioned by the police.

Dibete Police station commander, Superintendent Meshack Ranku said the suspect’s passport showed he entered the country at Tlokweng border post and was destined for Tanzania. “We do not know if he wanted to drive the stolen car or he was smuggling the car to Tanzania. Investigations into the matter are ongoing.
