However, the suspect got stuck in traffic at the intersection of Hendrik Potgieter and Jim Fouché Roads. A security officer jumped out of his vehicle to try and stop the suspect, but the suspect managed to push his way through the traffic and drove off on Jim Fouché Road towards Weltevreden Park.

A chase ensued, with the suspect turning into Without Street in Weltevreden Park. There the officer managed to stop the stolen vehicle and apprehend the thief, as the road is a dead-end.

The suspect was detained until the Honeydew Police arrived on scene.
