Be vigilant. Do not ignore alarms. Call it in!
There have been five break ins so far this month.
What investigations reveal so far:
All incidents have taken place near building sites.
Burglars have managed to by-pass beams and alarms and it appears they use reconnaissance tactics such as taking ‘selfies’ outside houses to get footage of security measures and triggering beams using stones over a period of time to test activation and response times.
The burglars use tools to remove window panes for quick access into ground floor studies/TV rooms where they know they will find bags/laptops/ipads.
They do not appear to want any confrontations and do not appear violent. They seem to want to get in and out quickly.
What the HCG is doing:
Arranged new and extra CSS patrols.
Arranged raids of building sites with SAPS using a finger print machine.
Replaced the lock on the gate on open field on Stirling.
Ensured all cameras are working and iSentry operating.
Arranged for new power supply to 2 cameras that were interrupted as a result of building work.
Cut grass fields on the Spruit.
Working with JPMD and ward councillor on moving squatters out of public spaces.
Working with neighbouring resident associations to move squatters off the Spruit and prevent setting up of new camps.
Liaising with developers regarding fencing off the area between the Shell Garage on William Nicol and Rosehaven retirement village.
Maintaining pressure on the displaced persons unit to make long term plans for housing of sqautters.
