Be aware, be alert

2016-03-02 06:00

LAST week a number of attempted robberies from parked cars took place in and around Pine Street. A gang of three to five young men moved up and down Pine and Okes streets looking for targets.

They were observed using a jammer and taking goods off the back of bakkies. Out-of-town people are advised to do their chores first rather than leave goods in plain sight on the back of a bakkie.

Police urge motorists to be aware and alert and to report immediately any suspicious or illegal activity, and please make double sure your vehicle is actually locked.
