Be on the lookout for suspicious vehicles
17 February 2012 | David Jenkin
Among the concerns under discussion at a recent security meeting was the high incidence of housebreakings in sectors 3 and 4, as well as theft out of motor vehicles in Illovo at the intersection of Oxford and Rudd roads. Theft of and out of motor vehicles with the use of jamming devices is ongoing at the Hyde Park Corner parking area. Motorists are again urged to ensure their cars are properly locked.
Warrant Officer Abby Ramohlola warned residents of Sector 4 to be on the lookout for a white Ford Bantam and a white Nissan 1 400 with a step ladder, lawnmower and other gardening equipment in the back. Vehicles matching this description have previously been linked to robberies where the culprits have posed as a gardening service.
In Illovo an old model white Mercedes Benz has been linked to housebreakings and a white Hyundai Getz with three occupants has been linked to incidents of car theft.
In sectors 3 and 4, particularly in Atholl, a white Polo has been linked to cases of robbery in which the victims were followed home from shopping malls. Warrant Officer Steven Puka warned residents of Sandown Estate in sector 3 of a high occurrence of housebreakings at night.
Bramley police wish to extend a message of thanks to co-operating security companies. A recent security meeting at the Saxon Hotel in Sandhurst was attended by ADT, Servest Security, CRD Security, Sandhurst Estate, Chubb and 10/10 Security. Bramley police are grateful to these companies for their participation. They urged residents to reprimand their security companies if they were not attending security meetings.
The security meetings for all Bramley sectors take place every Tuesday at 10am at the station.
