Kempton Park – Two women have been arrested after they allegedly stole their landlord’s car in Kempton Park.
The suspects, aged 27 and 38 were arrested on charges of possession of a suspected stolen vehicle. The women rented a flat in Glen Marais, and allegedly stole their landlord’s black Toyota Yaris, which was later found abandoned at China Gate shopping mall by the Benoni Flying Squad and a local security company.
Flying Squad spokesperson Warrant Officer Grant Giblin said the black Toyota Yaris was stolen during the night on November 24 from a house in Dann Road, where the two suspects rent a flat.
“The suspects were spotted on CCTV camera footage taking the vehicle; after leaving the vehicle they returned home, where they were arrested. The car was found after one of the women told officers where they had parked it,” Giblin said.
