The highest trending items that have been stolen are:
• Plasma TV’S
The burglar’s most trending entry points have been:
• Back doors
• Sliding doors
The hotspots for the week:
This week, residential properties suffered 55% of the positive incidents.
11 of the 14 positive burglaries had no loss on site. It has been reported that there is an increase in assaults during house robberies. Monty Montgomery urges all clients to make sure you have a safe room in case of emergency and the necessary alarm equipment handy e.g. Remote panics.
Although we have had an immense increase in attempted burglaries, we are pleased to say that the reason most of them were unsuccessful, is because they were disturbed by an alarm activation, vigilant client or a security measure like a security gate or sufficient alarm protection.
The following vehicles were used in armed robberies this week:
• White Ford Focus
• Blue Toyota
• White one Tonner
Month to date 5 arrests have been reported – 4 of these were made by Atlas Security Response Officers. We would like to thank the Metro, SAPS and community for their assistance.
