Blue International managing director Wade Anderson said intruders had forced open the window and burglar bars of a business in Davenport Road in broad daylight at 8am last Tuesday. The intruders fled the scene with 18 computers and two laptops.
“Intruders struck another business premises in the same road at 6am the following day after they managed to force open the door of the property. Computers and a television were reported stolen,” Anderson said.
Anderson said a third business-breaking incident was reported in Esther Roberts Road at around 8am on the same day. “Intruders forced open a window and fled with a Hi-Fi,” Anderson said.“In a separate incident in Berea Road residents arrested a trespasser who was handed over to the police.”
Robbers also targeted several businesses and residences in Morningside in Stamfordhill Road, Rosetta Road, Waller Crescent, Montpelier Road, Essenwood Road and East Street in Overport. “Intruders gained entry by forcing open windows, doors and gates and fled with computers, a television, laptops, cellphones, electronic tablets and a geyser,” he said.
“We urge business owners to be vigilant and to make sure that their alarm systems are armed at night and when there is no-one on the property. Never leave valuables such as documents, cash or cell phones in the car even if these items are out of sight and the car is parked behind locked gates.”
