JOHANNESBURG - The City of Johannesburg says a police sting operation has resulted in the arrest of 10 people from a hijacked property.

The suspects were handcuffed at Jeppestown on Friday.

City spokesperson Lucky Sindane says the suspects face various charges.

“They will be charged with malicious damage to property, trespassing and contempt of court. This comes after they hijacked the property in 2015 and they refused to pay the monthly rental. They also refused the owner access to her property.”
