KwaZulu-Natal – ‘Stolen cars’ are making its way to the top of the list within South Africa’s category of major car crimes.

The dates between June 24th and July 7th witnessed deep crime investigation throughout the city of Durban and surrounding regions.

According to police spokesperson, Thulani Zwane, Durban has experienced a car crime syndicate worth a rough estimate of R3.5-million, in stolen vehicles.
