Stolen wheels didn’t get far

STOLEN WHEELS: The wheels of a car left standing on bricks were found just a few houses away in Fiat Street, Eden Park.

IF THERE is one notorious street in the whole of Eden Park, Fiat Street is it. Stolen goods from every second burglary end up in this street. And most of the time, they are found at the same house.

On Thursday night, November 23, Cynthia Vilakazi of Ford Street parked her car next to her kitchen door before she went to bed. The next morning, she got up early to get herself ready to collect the toddlers she delivers to different schools. This is her only means of income.

“I almost went mad when I found my car standing on bricks with all four wheels gone,” Cynthia said. “I immediately took a walk around the block and luckily I met a man who, after telling him my ordeal, told me where he had seen wheels. I called the police and rightfully, my four wheels were found at a house in Fiat Street.”

Furious women of Ford Street who came out to sympathise said something must be done, as the suspect is well-known for involvement in many burglaries yet is never arrested.

By the time the wheels were found and collected from the house in Fiat Street, the owner had already opened a case of theft at Eden Park Police Station. The police are currently looking for the suspect.
