Motorists warned about jamming devices

“Two incidents were reported last weekend where motorists thought they had locked their vehicles with a remote control, not realising thieves were jamming the signal. In both cases expensive valuables were stolen from the vehicles,” said Romano van der Spuy, acting chairman for the Hartbeespoort Community Policing Forum.
“The first incident was reported at Village Mall on Friday at 17:00 when a woman locked her vehicle and went shopping. When she returned the vehicle was open and a laptop, tablet and modems gone. On Saturday a laptop and hard drive were stolen from a vehicle at Dreiers. The owner locked his vehicle and when he returned it was open and his belongings gone,” Van der Spuy said.
“The CPF is warning people to make sure their vehicles are locked before they walk away. The jamming devices interfere with the remote locking system and the doors fail to lock. Don’t leave valuables in the vehicle, it is an open invitation to thieves.”
