The spokesperson of the local police, Const Nanikie Nonyane said they have received a high number of cases from the community.

* Make sure you check all your windows and doors are properly closed before you can go to bed or leave your house if you are going somewhere.
* Your lights must be on even when you are not around so that they criminals will not hide in dark corners in your yard.
