Further investigations will be done to find the origin of the other six vehicles.

Ramphora says when they arrested the first suspect at the scene, they also found vehicle parts that are believed to have been stripped off some stolen vehicles.

This led to the discovery of another workshop in Second Street, CBD, where more suspected stolen vehicles were found.

The police also recovered six car radios with their front covers, several cellphones, vehicle keys and stolen vehicle engines at the shop in the CBD.

The vehicles were taken to the Van Ryn Deep Pound in Benoni.
