The South African Police Service (SAPS) confirmed the hijacking of a truck in Kempton Park.
Metro Police tailed the four suspects and successfully hauled them in.
The arrest also led to an incredible discovery.
One of the arrested men revealed that more than 60 television sets had been offloaded in a vacant field in Glen Austin.
The value of the recovery hasn’t been confirmed as yet, but one of the UHD sets could easily sell for R10 000.
Briefly.co.za gathered that this particular plot had been used for similar criminal activity previously.
Some tweeps found humour in the incident and couldn’t resist a chuckle on social media.
Some social media users blamed the government for not taking a tougher stance on criminals.
Ironically, there seemed to be a reluctance to give credit to the cops for their brilliant work, but a few recognised their efforts.
