On Saturday at around 13:00 four Chinese nationals were travelling in a Toyota Land Cruiser from Usakos towards Uis. About 10km before reaching Uis they seemingly parked their vehicle next to the road and went into the field to take photos.

It is alleged that they left the vehicle unguarded and, on their return, they found one window of the vehicle on the passenger’s side smashed out and the unknown suspect/s stole a tool kit as well as one bag containing documents. The victims were however not interested in laying a charge.

The public members/road users as well as farmers using the gravel roads or staying in the areas of Usakos /Spitzkoppe /Uis/Henties Bay gravel roads as well as C-14 Walvis Bay – Windhoek gravel road are requested by the Namibian Police in Erongo to be vigilant and report any suspicious vehicle (especially vehicles without registration numbers), driving around in those areas, “vehicles parked next to the road with alleged mechanical problems, those which allegedly run out of fuel, or any suspicious movements to the nearest Police Station for immediate action and investigation in order to protect our tourists from being robbed by these criminals”, said NamPol’s Crime Investigation Coordinator for the Erongo region Erastus Iikuyu.
