In a statement on Facebook, Milnerton CPF said that over the past weekend, they received a warning from a member of the public who had his cellphone stolen at Canal Walk on Friday evening.

‘’We are unable to verify his version of events but are aware that a number of phones have been stolen at the mall.’’

According to the forum, a minor was also pick pocketed in another incident, this time at the Wonderland and lost his brand new phone.
