Two suspects are in police custody after a stolen motorbike valued at about R7 000 was found in a taxi in Central.
The suspects are believed to have stolen the motorbike along the M4 freeway on Friday at about midday while the owner went to get assistance after it broke down.
Later that evening the motorbike was confiscated by police.
Police spokeswoman Colonel Priscilla Naidu warned motorbike owners to be vigilant.
“Motorbikes have also been reported stolen from locked garages,” Naidu said.
