A CASE of theft was opened at the Kokstad Police Station after a car battery was stolen from a vehicle parked in Hawthorn Street on May 31.

SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo said the vehicle owner left the car in good condition when he went to sleep and the following day he noticed a problem with the car lights. When he checked the car battery he discovered it was stolen.

“The R1 500 battery was stolen from the car and police have opened a case of theft from a motor vehicle,” said Ncongo.

He said five other cases of items being stolen out of motor vehicles are being investigated.

“A vehicle parked on Main Street was found with a passenger door and window broken and a wallet containing money was stolen from the car on May 31. The car owner was sleeping when thieves broke into the car,” said Ncongo.

He warned people to be watchful of this kind of crime. — Supplied.
