A total of 39 incidents were reported to Atlas Security. Of these, 23 were positive burglaries, 4 attempted burglaries, 5 armed robberies, 4 theft incidents, 1 incident of vandalism, 2 medical assistances and 4 arrests were made.
In a week of mayhem for everyone caused by loadshedding and various other factors, crime was kept to the lower end of the average. Commercial properties seemed to be targeted with 64% of the incidents compared to the 36% of incidents happening in residential properties. Business owners need to ensure that their systems are up to date. Armed robberies are fitting into the ‘regular occurrence’ category, which is something that we as a community need to not be okay with. We need to be aware of what’s going on around us.
