Police in Mankweng appealed to residents to take more care with locking their vehicles on Thursday after a man had a large sum of money stolen from his car while running an errand.
“We are appealing to people to be more careful,” said police spokesperson Constable Moses Molepo.
The man had parked his car and dashed into a supermarket to make a delivery in the northern Limpopo town at noon on Wednesday, leaving R20 000 inside, with the doors of the vehicle unlocked and a window unopened.
When he returned, his R20 000 was gone.
Molepo said that crime was relatively low in Mankweng, but people should still make sure their doors were properly locked and their windows closed when they left their vehicles.
“Generally we are good. We don’t have a problem with theft. We just want to warn our people.”
