Information from the police report indicates that on Wednesday, 23 March 2022 at about 20h30 members from Mbuzini received a tip-off about the suspected stolen vehicles, two Toyota Hilux bakkies as well as a Toyota Prado which were all heading in the direction of Mozambique borderline. They immediately contacted SANDF and as the vehicles were a few kilometres to the borderline, SANDF members were already waiting for them.

The suspects allegedly ignored the warning to stop, thereafter a shootout ensued whereby members of the army reportedly fired some shots. As a result, one of the suspects is said to have been shot at whilst the other two fled, leaving behind all the vehicles on the scene.
