Over the last few weeks there has been some success stories in Gaborone regarding catching criminals. All of them becauseof good Samaritans and people being on the look-out.
Hazel Mmopi-Maswabi shared her story on the Fight Crime Gaborone Facebook group last week.”Thieves broke into my car which was parked by Middle Starand stole my laptop. They were caught because some good
samaritan saw them break into my car and took their licence plate, it was a white tazz B676 AEW, he then waited for them to leave and informed us – the police traced the buggers!
Thanks Mr. O. Morake for getting the number.” A discussion later revealed that this same car had been usedin several other crimes around the city. Hopefully we will not be
seeing this car or its three male occupants for quite awhile.We in the Fight Crime Gaborone would also like to thank Mr.Morake – you have made this town a safer place.
The second success story comes from Gabs FM host SimbaMudereri. Who used the air waves and social media to alert people of a listeners car that had been stolen. The car was
found in Phakalane by a listener who called into the station and the car was recovered.
