The Police are advising members of the public to be cautious while wearing jewellery in light of increased attacks on persons in relation to the cash-for-gold trade.



According to the police, persons are usually attacked early mornings and late evenings, usually as they are on their way to bus stops or are out jogging.



The police say while they respect and support the public's need for freedom of choice and movement, they are asking individuals to be careful in the decision to wear jewellery.



The police say divisional commanders are now re-shaping their policing plans in an effort to quash this latest threat to safety and security.



They are appealing to members of the public who may notice untoward happenings in their communities to contact their local police or call 119.
