” What one tends to see with us most South Africans is that we need more money, and as the holiday season approaches, you have to buy a lot of things around this time for entertainment and leisure.”

Two jewelry stores at the Pavilion mall in Westville were attacked by armed robbers on Sunday, according to Lamb, a member of Stellenbosch University.

Additionally, read: City vows, Durban CCTV cameras are operational in time for the holiday season.

Before escaping, they killed police sergeant Riyadh Adams.

According to Lamb,” this is a group of people who are together, have specialized tools to break, and who have some experience and know-how when we are specifically looking at organized crime, which is the robbery of Jewish stores.”

From a stock perspective, many jewelry stores would probably buy more stock during the months leading up to Christmas than they would throughout the rest of the year. Additionally, these jewelry stores are legitimately stocking cash.
