Jakes Gerwel Drive has been prioritised for policing to eliminate the risks associated with smash-and-grabs. Police spokesperson Andre Traut has asked motorists to be on the lookout for suspicious people or objects when travelling late at night or early in the morning. The administrator of the Jakes Gerwel Drive Facebook group, Ridwaan Nero, says that there had been about 17 incidents over the past month while they are seeing five to six incidents a week. Nero says that smash and grabs are a service delivery problem.
