A robbery took place at the Billabong factory shop yesterday morning, shortly after opening time. The shops had been on high alert all weekend as information was received on Friday about suspicious people lurking around in the area.
The modus operandi used seems to indicate that inside information was obtained prior to the robbery being committed. An undisclosed sum of cash was taken. The Jeffreys Bay Police are investigating several leads in the case.
Residents in Wavecrest are again urged to be vigilant and to lock up their property when going to bed at night. Sliding doors need to secured with inexpensive bolts and motor vehicles should be parked in garages where possible. There has been hardly any criminal activity in Aston Bay and Paradise Beach over the past week.
