Important Hints

  

The four sector leaders of Garfontein Police Station held a joint operation on 15 February in order to combat crime.

They were assisted by several security companies.

They have focused in every sector on streets that are known as problem areas. This resulted in 22 arrests.

Special attention was paid to loiterers, beggars and potential illegal immigrants.

Tshwane's metro police also assisted by removing illegal traders in Garsfontein Road.

Feedback from the State Advocate.

Working in his workshop on the 29th January, one of our residents was confronted by two people; a tall man wearing glasses and a short woman with tattoos of hearts on her upper arm.

The man asked  questions about the resident's occupation and indicated that he wanted to make use of his services. The woman asked whether she might use the toilet but the resident refused because his vicious dogs were inside the house.

They stood around, making small talk while the owner resumed his work; not keeping an eye on his mobile phone which was lying nearby. Within minutes after they had left, he realised that his phone was stolen and ran after them. However, they disappeared so fast that he believed they were picked up by a vehicle.

People who answered to their description might have been involved in a breaking in Falda Street where electronic equipment was stolen.

Please be on the lookout for these cunning characters!
