CRIME BRIEFS

Talk of the Town - - News -

IN the early hours of last Fri­day morn­ing, just af­ter mid­night, a num­ber of re­ports were re­ceived re­gard­ing bark­ing dogs in Um­doni Downs and at ShangriLa while, at 2.40am, an at­tempted break-in was dis­cov­ered at Foun­tain Rocks View where a bur­glar had forced open the slid­ing door and cut open the se­cu­rity gate to en­ter the en­ter­tain­ment area.

The bur­glar was busy forc­ing open the sec­ond slid­ing door when he was sur­prised and fled the premises.

At around 2pm on Fri­day, a sus­pi­cious per­son was seen at a home in Henry Street but re­spon­ders found noth­ing. Like­wise, at around 4pm at Medelino Car­a­van Park, a panic call was re­ceived re­gard­ing a sus­pi­cious per­son at one of the chalets there. How­ever, again the re­spon­ders found noth­ing.

ON Satur­day just af­ter 1pm a mes­sage from the What­sApp West Beach Crime Watch re­ported sus­pi­cious male named Al­fred want­ing to wash the cars. He was wear­ing a black Bil­l­abong T-Shirt and brown jacket. Re­spon­ders found noth­ing sus­pi­cious when they in­ves­ti­gated.

On Sun­day an un­wanted guest was ejected from the Port Al­fred Ski-boat Club by se­cu­rity of­fi­cers who were un­able to get his name.

On Mon­day morn­ing at around 40 min­utes past mid­night a break-in at a flat si­t­u­ated on premises in Dick­en­son Road was in­ves­ti­gated. The bur­glar had en­tered through the front door that had not been locked. Dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion it was dis­cov­ered that an­other two flats had been bro­ken into. Their alarms had not been armed by the own­ers. The bur­glar(s) had en­tered through the back win­dow, which has no bur­glar bars at both flats to gain en­try. They stole a black back­pack, a Sam­sung cam­era, two sets of ear­phones, a Viper smoker and charger, a com­puter tablet and its charger as well as about R500 in cash.

At 1.40am there were more re­ports of bark­ing dogs in the West Beach Drive area, again on the What­sApp group. The area was pa­trolled but the bark­ing had stopped.
