Thanks to our two courageous patrollers and their 6 dogs who bravely fought six armed robbers at Lehae Primary School about 1:05am.
The robbers who arrived at around 1am, parked their get-away bakkie next to the Golden Highway.
They gained access by breaking the cement pillars and proceeded to the guard house where they were confronted by six dogs. The dogs barking alerted the patrollers to the presence of the intruders.
Police back-up was called for, while two sector policing vehicles responded. The intruders scattered, only two managed to get into the get-away vehicle and escape. The rest fled by foot.
We applaud the bravery and sacrifice shown by the six dogs and two patrollers who prevented a crime. This is the second attempt at robbery, within a week at the same school We salute our dedicated patrollers and their six dogs.
