Johnny saves the day

WARRANT Officer Johnny Hayward recovered a golden necklace after receiving a tip-off.
He followed up the information about a person trying to sell the expensive 18-carat gold necklace and found Gafiso Tahal, 23, from Ocean View in possession of the jewellery.
After a thorough investigation another suspect Lennox Melani, 20, also from Ocean View, was arrested, and two others were questioned.
Hayward discovered that the two suspects were part of a team of window cleaners who allegedly worked at a house in a Jeffreys Bay retirement village.
He visited the retirement village and spoke to the owner of the house.
Chrissie Terblanche confirmed that she had her windows cleaned by the team on Tuesday July 17.
Afterwards she noticed that money was missing from her purse. She said that she had not reported the incident to the police because she was not sure who had taken it.
Hayward asked her to check if anything else was missing from the house. She then discovered that two of her necklaces were also missing and positively identified the necklace as hers.
An obviously delighted Terblanche had the highest praise for the Jeffreys Bay police.
The suspects appeared in the Humansdorp court on Monday.
The police are still looking for a gold necklace with an emerald (green) pendant.
Anyone with information can phone the investigating officer, Warrant Officer Oosthuizen at (042)200-6 623.
All tavern and spaza shop owners are invited to a tax compliance workshop which will be held at the Jeffreys Bay Police Station at 6pm on Thursday, July 26.
The purpose of the workshop is to educate shop and tavern owners on the importance of tax compliance, and to assist them with registration for income tax, and any other tax-related issues for which they are required to be registered.
