There are increased reports around the country that criminal syndicates are using remote control devices to disrupt signals when drivers use their hand held car locking systems.
Pretoria police spokesperson Ann Poortman said they have made several arrests and confiscated some of the equipment.
But newcomers continue to operate in and around the city.
In light of the scourge, police are urging motorists to physically check whether their vehicles are locked before walking away.
