A Kia Picanto was found by LGEP ground crew and stopped by SAPS Flying Squad. Numerous items of apparel were found without any proof of purchase or ownership.

Do you know what a “booster/magic bag” used by shoplifters is? A “booster bag” can be an ordinary shopping bag, backpack, pocketed garment, or other inconspicuous container whose inside is lined with a special material, typically multiple layers of aluminium foil. This is used to aid their theft, conceal stolen items and throw off metal detectors.
The vehicle was stopped by on-site security and numerous remote jammer's and break-in implements were found, along with presumed stolen property, namely laptops, spare false registration plates and Libido Booster tablets.
The driver was detained before he could commit any further theft. Coincidence that he was stopped on 11/11? We think not! Another one bites the dust!
Hot Tip - Always physically check your door handles when locking your vehicle with a remote key.
