Linden Police confirmed that hammer gangs have allegedly hijacked two vehicles and are targeting residents in their driveways.

Apparently a group of three gangs in a white VW Polo and another group of two gangs driving an old VW white Jetta were terrorising the suburbs of Fontainebleau and Blairgowrie over the past few days.

Captain Alex Vermaak from the Linden SAPS said one vehicle was hijacked in Morris Avenue and the other one in Blairgowrie Drive in Blairgowrie.

He explained that over the past few days at least five incidents of hijacking occurred. “Those vehicles are not recovered yet,” Capt Vermaak explained.
