Man nabbed for fake hijacking

A 53-year-old man has been arrested in connection with claims of a false hijacking.

The man, from Kalkfontein in Kuils River, claimed the hijacking occurred in Strand and reported it to the Kuils River Police Station on Monday 22 October.

“The hijacking allegedly took place in the Strand precinct, near the graveyard,” a police spokesperson said. “The case was led by the provincial anti-hijacking unit, which found that the vehicle involved in the case was involved in another crime.”

The unit discovered that the information was falsified to provide an alibi to detract from the actual crime being committed.

The complainant in the case was arrested for defeating the ends of justice, and is due to appear in the Kuils River Magistrate’s Court today (Thursday 1 November).

The police warn they will take decisive action against those who falsely report crimes to cover other crimes, or for fraudulent insurance claims. “We interrogate every reported incident to establish if the facts provided are true,” the spokesperson said.

Report false cases to Lt Col Franklin Plaatjies on 082 469 3359.
