Remote jammers caught red-handed

Police officers in Bellville made inroads in their fight against remote jammers on Saturday.

TygerBurger recently reported on the sudden surge in remote jamming cases in Bellville.

“At the moment we’re seeing many of these incidents in the parking lot of the Pick n Pay in Boston and the Spar centre in Bill Bezuidenhout Road,” says Lieutenant Colonel Fienie Nimb, Bellville Police Station’s spokesperson.

She says warrant officers Whitey van Zyl and Gawie Hawkins went undercover on Saturday in a quest to find the suspects in this trend.

While at the Pick n Pay in Boston they saw a white Mazda vehicle parking and three suspicious-looking men getting out of the vehicle. Instead of going to the shop the men started walking among the vehicles.

“The police officers searched them and found numerous remote jamming devices.”

While still on the scene the police received a call saying a white Mazda had recently been stolen at the Spar complex in Bill Bezuidenhout Road.

The licence plate matched that of the vehicle the suspects had driven to the Pick n Pay. Inside they found the complainant’s handbag.

“Her laptop had already been sold to a secondhand dealer, where the officers later retrieved it.”

The three men, all from Delft, were arrested.

Nimb has urged vehicle owners to make sure their car is actually locked before walking away.

She advises lifting the door handle after locking the vehicle with a remote to make sure the vehicle is locked.
