Police in Manguzi, KwaZulu Natal said they have seized at least twenty cars at the border between South Africa and Mozambique between June and August.
Reports say eight suspects have been arrested so far and have all been taken to Manguzi Magistrate Court on charges of being in possession of suspected stolen vehicles.
The stolen vehicles include trucks, bakkies and smaller cars, which were recovered during the process of crossing the border and some were found hidden in dense vegetation.
A majority of which were stolen or hijacked from various parts of the country destined to be taken across the border.
The engine and chassis numbers on these vehicles had been altered making it difficult to link the vehicles to vehicle-related crimes across the country, said the police.
