We witnessed a brazen smash and grab, 10:30 am on Saturday morning on the Lenchen street bridge towards Old Johannesburg Road.
Note the time, 10:30 am, in peak traffic with loads of people on the road.
As we had a member right behind the targeted vehicle, we managed to respond within seconds calling the incident into the JOC, who activated numerous patrols to assist.
The suspects were chased, however, due to them using the N1 as a getaway with cars picking them up, it was a battle lost! Frustrating again!
Be aware when you are driving on any road. Every robot is a potential hotspot and thinking that you are safe because it is peak traffic is a lie to yourself!
Look around you before you stop at a stop sign or robot. Be aware of people walking around your car, even if they sell or beg for money!
Be vigilant and keep looking after each other!
