GEORGE NEWS - Thieves were literally stopped in their tracks last weekend at the Pacaltsdorp sports grounds.
Officials noted a theft in progress on the surveillance cameras at the grounds around 08:19 on Saturday 19 September and alerted the Law Enforcement Unit. The officials from Law Enforcement arrived at the scene of the crime moments later and chased after the perpetrators.
“They were not able to run away while carrying the iron framework and other stolen goods and resorted to dropping the items in a bid to escape,” said municipal communications officer Debra Sauer. “Law Enforcement personnel were able to retrieve the stolen goods and return the items to their rightful place.“
She said George Municipality is proud of its Law Enforcement team and the ‘big brother’ team that monitors its CCTV surveillance cameras.
To report vandalism or any other wrongdoing to George Municipality property, phone the all-hours emergency number, 044 801 6300.
