Confidence restored in police

2018-07-17 06:01

My confidence has been restored in the police.

I work at the BP garage on Prince George Drive in Lavender Hill.

On Saturday 7 July, the attendant served a customer and paid in R120. The cashier informed him that it was a fake R100 note.

The attendant was very upset as he is responsible to check the authenticity of the note.

He informed me that he will be laying a charge at the police station.

I laughed at him and said “good luck with that”. I told him, I will give you R100 if the police investigate this matter, as the police have a heavy work load.

Lo and behold, I was not happy to see the police on Sunday morning, Warrant Officer Duimpies, Captain Rossouw and Detective Voorman. By 14:00 the same day the motorist came to settle the matter.

Although it was at my expense! Great stuff Steenberg Police Station!
