Monty’s Crime Report: Daylight robbery!
Brazen robbers were spotted breaking into a home during the day in Port Elizabeth this past week as reported by Monty Montgomery, Atlas Security Operations Manager. The footage shows their nonchalant behaviour – walking away casually with their loot. It is time that we step up our game.
Residents step up and assist in the fight against crime. Do not let your guard down. Do not think that “it will never happen to me”. Plan for the unforeseen. Have a plan and most importantly, have barriers and security means of catching these thugs. Monty urges residents to assist him and his team to make more arrests. We want these criminals behind bars, where they belong.
The reason for the urgent warning is due to the fact that the front door kickers are at it again. This week we saw a surge of front doors being kicked down. Front doors are currently one of the preferred entry points for house break-ins. Protect your TV’s and secure your property as best as possible.
A very important reminder is to always arm your alarm. Make sure that Atlas will receive multiple signals should your property be invaded. The best method is to get an alarm activation before they actually gain entry into your property.
Theft of motor vehicles was far too high this week. Be careful where you park your vehicle.
Our students and learners are still being targeted. Monty urges the public to look out for them. If you find yourself near a school / university, look around and observe. The more eyes we have on them, the better. Advise your children to always stay in groups. Never take short cuts and wonder off alone.
Business burglaries are still ongoing but with a slight improvement. Secure properly and make sure that you have multiple security barriers.
Burglaries during the day have increased with most incidents happening while residents were at home. This is extremely dangerous and life threatening. Ensure that you’re armed with a panic buttons and early warning barriers. Do not be surprised by criminals in the privacy of your home. Stay safe and rest assured, your world is secure in Atlas’ hands.
