Overview of activity in Milnerton Ridge – October

There was a break-in at a residential property during the month. (not a Crime Watch client). This is the first incident for some time and wall jumpers were also witnessed in the vlei area. There was also a robbery from a commercial premise, where our Response Officers assisted in detaining the suspect, who injured himself trying to escape.

By the Gallery Shopping Centre, we had a report of a resident who went through an attempted carjacking, with vehicles trying to block the road – he managed to escape by driving onto the pavement. We anticipate an increase in criminal activity in the lead up to Christmas.
Response Officers also detected a suspect with a trolley full of stolen goods that he claimed had been given to him by a resident. The goods had in fact been stolen and the Response Officers ensured all goods were returned to the owner.

Driving through the Milnerton Ridge last Sunday night, I was amazed at the number of bins that were already out. This explains why the number of vagrants has increased dramatically on Sunday evenings /early Monday mornings. Please only put bins out in the morning. Remember not all vagrants are vagrants – some are criminals hiding amongst them looking for opportunities and in certain cases they are being aided by the Eskom loadshedding situation.

During loadshedding, every alarm that is on sends a signal to the Control Room as soon as the power goes off. We are therefore inundated with signals and the Armed Response Officers are extremely busy being dispatched to respond to these alarm activations.

The petrol price has increased again by R1,21 per litre and is expected to rise more towards December, which will reflect a 30% increase this year. As previously reported, we are trying not to pass this onto our clients, but the added pressure of loadshedding is making this very difficult indeed.
