Two women were caught red-handed stealing bricks from a public pavement in Heideveld.

 

The aunties were photographed jepping the bakstene on the corner of Ascension Road and Robert Sobukwe Road on Monday afternoon.

 

According to Heideveld Residents Association chairperson, Vanessa Sauls, the stolen bricks are often sold to mense in the community.

 

The two female thieves were busy loading the bricks into the boot of their car vir almal om te sien.

“I was so shocked to see people confidently stealing from a public place and still defending their act,” says Sauls.

 

“They were hesitant when I stopped and told them they’re committing a crime and vandalising the pavement. They asked me who the owner was.

 

“We argued and another motorist intervened and pulled out her phone to film the incident. They then said they did not realise they were wrong. I took those bricks back out of the car myself, it was a lot of bricks, and they drove off.”

 

Sauls says the problem has been going on for months now, leaving lelike bare patches everywhere.

 

 

“I would like to urge our residents to stop buying these stolen bricks.
“With no buyers, these people have no business and there would be less motive for infrastructure vandalism.”

 

A member of the Eagle Eye Neighbourhood Watch Gadija Kallies says the latest incident has left the four-metre wide area at the traffic lights bare.

 

City of Cape Town spokesperson Luthando Tyhalibhongo says their Roads Infrastructure and Management depot in Heideveld was not aware of the incident and will dispatch a team to make the site safe.

 

“Stealing paving bricks has become common across the City. We implore the community and eye witnesses to report these incidents to the local police station, and to contact the City’s Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63.”

  • I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having
    a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • Everything posted was very reasonable. But, consider this, suppose
    you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell
    you how to run your website, however what if you added something that
    makes people want more? I mean 2 Elderly Female Thieves Caught
    Stealing Bricks At Pavement – Sly Media Tv is a little vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write
    post titles to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a
    pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make
    your posts a little bit more interesting.
