Crime Report 6 - 13 September 2017

Dear KSS clients

There has unfortunately been quite an increase in crime over the past month. The majority of crime is still opportunistic, as people are careless about leaving items visible from the road, garage doors open and out-buildings unprotected. I cannot stress enough that you need to increase your awareness to what is going on around you, not only at home, but also when you are out and about. Handbag / wallet theft from the CDB area has also increased.

Garden sheds and unprotected out-buildings are a definite target at the moment, with many clients calling in the next day to reports crimes, as they have gone unnoticed due to the lack of external protection measures. Should you need any advice regarding external beams or alarm installations / additions, please contact Keshen at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Church crime 

I have received an email from a local Church warning of a possible new modis operandi in the area. “Two weeks ago some perpetrators scaled our fence in the early hours of the morning – approximately 5.00 am and stole three tarpaulins from our covered sheds on the property. Then on Thursday 7th September the Church was open for a memorial service taking place. The intruders used this opportunity to enter and steal. KSS Bobbies were in attendance in the car park area on the day. Two young black males entered the church through the main gate, together with the folk attending the memorial service - which was open for the memorial service – and appeared to be part of the people attending the service. They then went into our offices, as well as the Sunday School Room. Our staff were not there as they were assisting with the memorial service.

A computer lock was ripped from a laptop and the laptop stolen and then they went through a handbag and stole money from the purse. On the way out they also stole a cell phone. Knight Security came and viewed our camera’s and have documented all the relevant information to try and identify the perpetrators. The perpetrators were dropped off outside the church in a white Citi Golf and were again picked up by the same vehicle. Unfortunately we were not able to read the registration plate from the camera angles. The incident was reported to our local SAPS in Howick”.

Please be aware of anything suspicious at church services, memorials, events etc… as the perpetrators appeared to “blend in” with what was going on.
