According to the Sunday World newspaper, four people, including Kwaito Muso Madlu’ Phuthu, were arrested on Friday night on the M North in Johannesburg after evading a tracking company’s ground crew in a high-speed chase that lasted for about an hour.
Pule is currently in a Hilbrow police holding cell and together with the three suspects will appear in the Hillbrow Magistrates’ Court tomorrow to face a charge of possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
Police spokesperson Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou confirmed to the Sunday World that four suspects aged between 27 and 34 were arrested on Friday night for the possession of a stolen motor vehicle on the M1 highway after a high speed chase with tracking company staff along the N12 highway. He refused to disclose their identity.
“The vehicle recovery company picked up a signal for a white VW Jetta 5, which was stolen during a housebreaking and theft incident that took place last month in Wright Park, Springs.
“During the chase, the vehicle recovery company lost the stolen motor vehicle, but the Johannesburg Flying Squad spotted the same vehicle along the M1 highway and pulled it over,” says Ndou.
Pule and three other suspects were pulled out of the vehicle and made to lie on their stomachs. They were handcuffed and bundled into a police van and whisked to Hillbrow police station, where they are still being detained.
