Thieves steal from NHW, club

2017-05-09 06:00

Containers in St Patrick Street in Seawinds that are the headquarters for the Seawinds Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) and the Young Ones senior citizens’ club were broken into during the last weekend of April.

Muizenberg police spokesperson Captain Stephen Knapp says the NHW chairperson made the discovery on the evening of Sunday 30 April after being alerted by others.

“The rear steel doors of the container were forced open and all the appliances inside the containers were stolen. Among these items were a black four-plate Kelvinator stove, a two-plate gas burner with a gas bottle, a Defy fridge and dishwasher, as well as various chairs, crockery and cutlery.”

Knapp says the break-in has had a devastating effect on the NHW members and affected their ability to run the senior club.

V Anyone with information on the burglary should call the detective, Warrant Officer Ivan Rogers, on 021 787 9000/14/15.
