STOLEN GOODS: A scrapyard in Limpopo 'specialising' in BMW car parts has been busted for allegedly being in the possession of several stolen BMWs from around the country, as well as more engines, panels and car parts.

Three scrapyard mechanics have been arrested after they were found in possession of stolen cars and parts in Makhado, Limpopo police said on Sunday (March 10 2013).

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the three were arrested on Saturday at a scrapyard dubbed 'BMW Specialist'.
