Suspects apprehended and stolen items recovered
KSS have apprehended over 6 suspects in the past 4 weeks. All these suspects were handed over to the respective SAPS stations for further prosecution. KSS also recovered numerous stolen items that have been returned to their owners / our clients. There are, however, two unclaimed items:
1. A bicycle recovered on the D292 in the Merrivale farming area.
2. A truck sail cover.
Both items must be clearly described and identified by the owners before KSS will hand them over.
Note: There is also still a lost gate/alarm remote at the KSS offices that needs to be identified. It was found in the Greendale Park area on the corner of Ridge Road and York Road a fortnight ago.
Always take note of as many details pertaining to the suspicious vehicle as possible, such as:
• The make and model
• Registration number (really important to get this accurate)
• Distinguishing features (dents, stickers, tinted windows etc…)
• Details of the occupants - if possible.
KSS are able to communicate these details to various other security companies in the area, as well as SAPS, who will then also look-out for the vehicle.

The reality of crime is that once again, our KSS Reaction Officers encountered armed intruders numerous times over the past month. This is becoming a more frequent occurrence (at least 7 times over the past 4 weeks), and a cause for some serious concern. The lives of not only our clients, but also our staff, are incredibly valuable and important to us. Changes to the operational procedures at KSS are inevitable, and will be made in the best interests of our clients, staff and the community at large. Your continued support of our efforts is always appreciated.
