.A truck transporting liquor worth more than R1-million was hijacked outside the Showground Liquor Store in Sydenham in Nelson Mandela Bay on Thursday morning.

The truck was parked outside the Old Uitenhage Road store preparing to off-load when it was hijacked by three men shortly before 8am.

The truck was loaded with several pallets of expensive alcohol‚ including high-end whiskey and bourbons‚ valued at about R1.2-million.

Over the past two weeks‚ more than 10 delivery trucks – carrying an assortment of stock – have been hijacked in the Bay in separate incidents.

10 trucks hijacked in 14 days in the same area? Certainly is news. Obviously there's some insider info on routes/delivery times which is being used for the targeting.
Not in the same area but scattered around PE. And I can tell you that it is more than ten!

I just went off what the article stated. But if it’s more than that then it surely must be organized, some form of syndicate.

of course these guys getting a pittance of a salary are obviously going to do what they can to get a cut of the deal....inside job.
