SHARJAH: Following the theft of two taxis in a space of an hour this month, the police and Sharjah Transport authorities have warned drivers to exercise caution when parking their cars in Sharjah Industrial Area “because they’re not so safe places due to their isolation.”

The warning was made by the Director General of Franchise at Sharjah Transport Corporation (STC), Abdul Aziz Marwan Al Jarwaan together with the police boss of Sharjah Industrial Area Station, Capt. Mohammed Ali Al Salman.

Capt. Mohammed had visited the STC to compare notes on the risks facing taxis safety in his area of jurisdiction and how to report theft cases to the law authorities.

The visit followed an incident when two taxi vehicles were stolen “within one hour of each other” in Industrial Area.

Al Jarwaan said, “After reporting to the General Headquarters of Sharjah Police, the STC shall also obtain a copy and also all police stations across the country be informed.”

Capt. Mohammed Ali further advised drivers to “keep a supervisory eye once they park their vehicles to avoid incidences of theft from the cars. The drivers should hurry to report any case.”

Meanwhile, the Director of Corporate Communication of STC, Abdulla Saeed has said that in the first six months of 2012, there were 1,345 messages regarding lost items.

“Out of these, the STC could recover only 451 items, of which 255 have been claimed and taken by their owners,” he said.

“When an item is claimed without the authenticity of proof, we forward it to the police headquarters,” said Abdullah. A customer can call STC’s toll free number: 70006700 or through reservation and distribution centre number: 600545455 to report a lost item.
