Local police warns the public to stay away from anyone stopping them and asking if they are interested in perfume. They then give them a paper or a perfume bottle to smell as a “sample”.

“Don’t! It’s a scam. The paper is laced with drugs. You will pass out so they can kidnap, rob or do worse things to you,” read a report a police officer sent out on Saturday. “Take note and alert everyone,” said Captain Charlene van der Spuy. – Supplied
