Cops recover stolen car, three years later

Table View police recovered a car three years after it was reported stolen.

According to police spokeswoman, Captain Adriana Chandler, the blue Lexus was found parked in Toscana Way, in Parklands, on Friday March 8.

Officers ran the licence plate and found it had been reported stolen in Ceres in December 2016.

Police questioned a 44-year-old at the residence where the car was parked.

He claimed the car was his, but Captain Chandler said the car’s licence disc was fraudulent and the man was arrested for being in possession of a stolen car.

Police arrested a 38-year-old man in Table View last week for allegedly raping his girlfriend on Wednesday March 6 said Captain Chandler.
