Weilbach said police in Tshwane central was experiencing an increase in theft from motor vehicle cases.

She said a number of cases were reported in which spare wheels and valuables were stolen from vehicles out of vehicles in Brooklyn, Garsfontein, Sunnyside, Villieria, Pretoria Moot, Silverton and Lyttelton.

“Some of these cases are so bizarre that it seems as if criminals have X-ray vision.”

“Only the vehicles, in which laptops and cellphones were left behind, were broken into.”
