A­ber­deen crime in short

Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Classifieds -

The­re we­re three ca­ses of no­te in A­ber­deen that we­re re­por­ted to the po­li­ce du­ring the last week.

The first was a re­si­den­ti­al bur­gla­ry, that took pla­ce at the T­hem­ba­le­si­z­we C­re­ché be­t­ween 10:00 on 27 Sep­tem­ber and 15:27 on 3 Oc­to­ber.

Ac­cor­ding to the com­plai­nant, the sus­pect or sus­pects gai­ned en­try by for­cing o­pen the back­door and sto­le e­lec­tri­cal ap­pli­an­ces and ot­her hou­se­hold i­tems to the va­lue of R618.

A­not­her re­si­den­ti­al bur­gla­ry took pla­ce at a hou­se in Lo­tus­vil­le, be­t­ween 1 Oc­to­ber and 6 Oc­to­ber. Access to the pro­per­ty was gai­ned by bre­a­king the lock on the door. Ac­cor­ding to the com­plai­nant, she was in hos­pi­tal w­hen her neig­hbour ca­me to in­form her that her hou­se had been bro­ken in­to. A DVD play­er and gold ring to the va­lue of R1400 was ta­ken.

The fi­nal ca­se in A­ber­deen is one of fraud.

On 10 Oc­to­ber at 17:55 the com­plai­nant re­por­ted for du­ty at the Traf­fic De­part­ment and took part in a vehi­cle check­point at the 21km mark on the N9 ro­ad.

A red Toyo­ta se­dan pas­sed them that look­ed sus­pi­ci­ous. The com­plai­nant and her col­le­a­gue went af­ter the vehi­cle and stop­ped it. W­hen they as­ked the dri­ver for his li­cen­se, she no­ti­ced that the ID pho­to does not fit the dri­ver of the vehi­cle.

The vehi­cle in que­s­ti­on was al­so un­li­cen­sed and un­re­gis­te­red. The sus­pect was ar­res­ted.
