CRIME BRIEFS

Talk of the Town - - News -

IT ap­peared to be a quiet week on the crime front, with few in­ci­dents re­ported.

There was an at­tempted break-in at High­wood Es­tate in Wood Street late last Thurs­day night.

Mul­tiSe­cu­rity re­sponded to a panic sig­nal from the premises. A ten­ant told the re­sponse of­fi­cer that some­one who looked like the care­taker had tried to break into their unit, us­ing a long stick to reach into an open win­dow in at­tempt to hook the keys.

The bur­glar fled when the ten­ant spot­ted him. Noth­ing was taken, but the ten­ant opened a case with the po­lice.

At about 1am on Fri­day, Mul­tiSe­cu­rity re­sponded to a panic sig­nal in River­side Drive.

The owner said some­one had been ring­ing their door­bell, but when he went to an­swer the door, the per­son had run off, jumped into a bakkie and sped off.

Re­sponse of­fi­cers pa­trolled the area but did not see any­thing sus­pi­cious.

Mul­tiSe­cu­rity re­sponded to an alarm at a house in Stocks Av­enue last Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon and found the glass at a back slid­ing door had been bro­ken.

Po­lice were also in­formed and at­tended. Kowie Glass and Alu­minum fixed the door.
