Mathe said police also seized five high-performance powered vehicles, including two BMWs, two Mercedes Benz sedans and one Toyota Urban Cruiser.

“Twenty cellphones and 30 portable GPS tracking devices were also among the items seized by the team,” police said.

Mathe said the businessman had been seized on January 7 and was successfully rescued from one of the premises and reunited with his family.

National SAPS Commissioner General Fannie Masemola has commended the team.

“Our message is clear: the SAPS is coming for all criminals; either they make our lives easy by handing themselves in, or we fetch them ourselves,” he said.
