The South African Police has requested that the public be vigilant around ATM’s as attacks on cash machines is on the rise across the country.
National police commissioner General Bheki Cele identified detonators, explosive gel, plastic explosives and cortex cable as some of the explosives used in recent ATM bombings.
“Members of the community are urged to be on the look out for this type of equipment or materials, and to advise the police immediately should they suspect individuals or groups are involved in ATM blasts,” Cele said in a statement.
Crime in general has decreased in Jeffreys Bay, especially housebreakings which have been a problem in Wavecrest. However, residents must still be aware and not become negligent and forget to secure windows and doors when going to bed at night.
