South African Police recover stolen cars
The J’Bay Police were again hard at work this weekend and made sure shebeens (illegal taverns) closed down at the legal closing time. These actions again saw a drop in contact related crimes in Ocean View/Pellrus over the weekend.
However, there were reported assaults in J’Bay Central, Mondplaas and C Place. There were house breakings in Wavecrest, Aston Bay and Ocean View/Pellsrus. Two bicycles were stolen in Noorsekloof Road and a business was robbed in Da Gama Road.
There was a rape reported from Tjoksville and Police are investigating. One drink driving arrest was made in C Place and residents are warned that a drink driving operation will take place this coming weekend in Jeffreys Bay.
House breakings have occurred in Humansdorp where suspects are gaining access through the roof. This modus operandi has not spread to Jeffreys Bay yet but residents are urged not to leave ladders lying around at night, thereby making it easier for criminals.
A visitor to Jeffreys Bay was robbed at the Nedbank ATM last weekend whilst drawing money. This incident occurred during the day and residents are urged to be aware and remain vigilant when using ATM’s.
The Police have announced that 64 stolen motor vehicles were recovered from the East London area. It is unclear at this stage whether any of the recovered vehicles come from Jeffreys Bay, but it is suspected that syndicates from the former Ciskei region have been active in the town.
