Mahlalela was arrested during an intelligence-driven operation led by the Mpumalanga Serious Organised Crime Investigation team together with Nelspruit Crime Intelligence on Thursday, 17 June 2021.

This follows an investigation into a series of car hijacking preceded by an incident of attempted cash-in-transit heist (CIT) on Thursday, 06 May 2021. It is alleged that a group of armed suspects rammed a cash van on the road between Barberton and Nelspruit and attempted to blow it with explosives.

When the suspects saw that the CIT is unsuccessful, they allegedly hijacked a Toyota Hilux bakkie and fled to Barberton. In Barberton, they allegedly abandoned the bakkie and hijacked a VW Polo which was later recovered between White River and Kabokweni.

The case against Mahlalela was postponed to 28 June 2021 and he remains in custody.
