JMPD spokesperson Edna Mamonyane says the specialised K9 unit spotted two truck underneath the Mooi Street off-ramp bridge while on routine patrol.

They caught the suspects loading the TVs from one truck to another.

"We then as a department returned the consignment back to the company," explains Mamonyane, adding that the two trucks were also impounded.

She says the suspects were making use of a jamming device to interrupt the truck driver's cell phone signal, the tracking company and the truck's radio.

The suspects are set to appear in court this week on charges of possession of stolen goods and hijacking.
