SAPS data-clerk arrested for car-theft – Elize Kruger’s old Ford Laser stolen three times this year
Jan 12 2011 – Mrs Elize Kruger (60) of Elsburg has been driving her trusty 1998-model Ford Laser for the past 14 years. But her feeling of security received bitter blows when her old car was stolen a whopping three times. The first theft was on Nov 8 2010 outside the Pick’n Pay supermarket iN Lambton – and it was found back 45 minutes later by Tracker. However while it was parked at the Germiston police station awaiting new documents, it was stolen again. A data-secretary at the police station has been arrested. Mrs Kruger can’t understand the series of thefts of her old, cheap car. “It isn’t particularly valuable or special,’ she exclaimed.
And Tuesday-morning Jan 11 2011 - Mrs Kruger – who has to drive her granddaughters to school and her husband to work every day – was having her Ford ‘s cracked windscreen fixed outside a pharmacy in Voortrekker Street in Elsburg – when it got stolen again. Her car ‘s anti-theft mechanism device stopped it several hundred metres later and the thieves fled.
But Mrs Kruger is is becoming deeply worried; she fears that she is being targetted by someone and feels very unsafe. “I live in fear for what may happen next. I need transportation to take my granddaughters to school every day, and to drop off and fetch my husband from work’.
She said that after the theft from the Germiston police station she got it back four days later when the police located it near Zonkesizwe in Kempton Park. And her car then was so badly damaged that her insurance company initially wanted to write it off altogether…. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Motor-3-keer-in-2-maande-gesteel-20110112
