Members of the public are advised that a crime trend is resurfacing whereby criminals would grab valuables from vehicles stuck in traffic.
This has been picked up by the Southern Division operations team with in areas where road works are underway.
A 17 year old was arrested after he grabbed a woman’s mobile phone before jumping off the bus.
However a chase by a bystander resulted in his arrest before he was handed over to Police.
Attempts made by youths to grab items from unsuspecting car owners have been foiled by the operations team along the junction of Gaji road particularly at night.
Officers have also gone to the extent of asking youths loitering in the area to return to their homes.
Vehicle owners and passengers are advised to keep valuables safely and be mindful of this crime trend as people will try to take advantage of commuters stuck in traffic as was the trend previously.
