Tongues were wagging in Riverlea about a Rolls Royce parked in the area and then the JMPD showed up.
According to police, the perpetrator was fleeing from the cops and abandoned the car in Riverlea where it was found after being stolen from a workshop at The Glen on Wednesday morning.

Apparently in an attempt to look cool, Riverlea resident Leranzo Jones posed for pictures next to "his" new Rolls Royce Ghost valued at 5 Million Rand and brand new would cost a whopping 10 Million Rand!
The pictures he  then posted on Facebook caused quite a stir and soon started spreading with accusations that Jones was "the stupid thief who stole a Rolls Royce and got caught after posting pics of himself and tnhe car on Facebook.
Jones however is not a suspect in the case.

Johannesburg Metro spokesperson Edna Mamonyane said in a statement the car was immediately reported stolen.

The workshop’s owner apparently spotted it while driving on the N12, and followed it off the N1 South at Golden Highway, where he also alerted two JMPD officers on patrol. After a high-speed chase, the car was found abandoned. No arrests were made after the suspect fled on foot between the houses.
