On January 14, 2022, at approximately 8:20 a.m. on the N3 highway on its northbound journey towards Johannesburg, the Harrismith highway patrol spotted a suspicious Nissan bakkie traveling on the northbound journey towards Johannesburg. The bakkie was stopped and searched, and nine tower batteries were discovered during the search.

Immediately after their arrest, the two suspects in the bakkie provided police with information about other suspects who were also in possession of stolen tower batteries.
