Two suspects, aged 43 and 35 years old, were arrested at 10:15 in Swartkops on Friday morning.

"This follows after a housebreaking and theft of motor-vehicle took place in Cradock during the night. A white Ford Ranger bakkie and various items were stolen," said police spokesperson, Captain Andre Beetge.

"Just after 10:00 in the morning, the SAPS K9 Unit followed the vehicle tracker and found the vehicle driving in Newlands Street, Swartkops.

"Two suspects were arrested that were in the vehicle. On searching the vehicle, the stolen tyres were also discovered and confiscated."

They will appear before the Motherwell Magistrate's Court on Monday to face charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and stolen goods.
