Suspected car jammer caught on camera

Suspected car jammer caught on camera:

Last week (1 September 2016) a man who is believed to be a car jamming suspect was caught on camera outside a shop in Witpootjie.

The video shows the man in a blue shirt walking towards the CCTV camera and then quickly turns around to face a white Mercedes van parked on the other side of the parking area.

He is then seen taking something out of his pocket before walking towards the van. It is believed that the item he removed from his pocket was the remote device used to unlock the van.

The man then approaches the van, opens the door and removes a handbag and house keys before walking off.
