According to reports, the police received a call about a house robbery in Honeydew. Police were told that two men had entered a home and stole jewellery, cellphones, and a Hyundai. Police then received a tip off that a Hyundai fitting the description of the stolen vehicle in Honeydew had been spotted on the N1 near the Garsfontein off-ramp.
