On the 4th of July on Yaldwin road malicious Damage to Property was done. According to the report a man broke open the Pay Phone that takes coins, assumedly to get at the cash inside. The Property owner alerted CMS who stood off, as did the SAPS but the case will have to be opened by Telkom as the telephone is their property. Then again on the 4th of July an alleged mentally disturbed person on the Paul Kruger Highway in the middle of the street with a brick that he was allegedly going to throw at a car as it passed. CMS and SAPS stood off and the man was removed for his own safety and that of others. It seems that the only recourse is to have the man taken to a hospital.
There was petrol theft at a garage on the 4th of July in Bayley street in Farrarmere. Six men in a car stopped at a service station and put petrol in and before the attendant could collect the money the six fled the scene without paying. The suspects were in a white Quantam.

The suspects arrived to pick up an order but the order proved to have been paid for with a fraudulent cheque.

However the suspects were arrested for being in the country without their required legal paperwork. CMS and SAPS were on the scene.
