Crime at parking areas

D van Wyk

It is reported that November 2017 there was a sharp increase in the incidents relating to theft from motor vehicles in our areas.

Captain Jan van der Berg indicated at the White River Community Police Forum that the community must be made aware that leaving any valuable item inside a vehicle, attract the criminals.  These items should rather be hidden out of sight in a vehicle before you park your car.

Park your car for visibility. The ideal parking space involves as much traffic around as possible. It could be foot traffic or other vehicles passing by.

From CD’s to sunglasses, GPS navigation systems to laptops, from a shopping bag to clothing, are all items that attract the theft from motor vehicle criminals.  Please take caution during December, to protect your valuables.
