Increased criminal activity

Increased criminal activity

Night before last criminals struck in FIVE different places and included home invasions where weapons were used. The five events were those that were reported to Watchcon and don’t include incidents that may have been reported directly to SAP. Last evening at 8pm criminals armed with a knife and screwdriver raided a home in Ruyteplaats collecting two Macbooks and an iPhone which unfortunately did not have it’s GPS tracker enabled. There was a very good response by Victorskloof residents to secure the perimeter of Ruyteplaats. An hour and 45 minutes later an attempt was made to enter another house within the estate indicating that the criminals had not yet exited the estate and shortly after this attempt a suspect was spotted on a third property within the estate. Evidence suggests Avignon Estate was also visited at some point. Speculation………….The home invasion gangs have regrouped (possibly some of our old operators back from State sponsored holidays) and are coordinating their raids in the Valley. There may be intelligence gathering meetings at a central point aimed at smart operations and staying one jump ahead of the law. Secure estates are being targeted for high value easy shopping. Fences are being prepared by tunneling under them and then concealing the tunnel either with undergrowth or soft earth. An 80’s model white Mazda 323 with a boot may be involved with pick-ups.

Hout Bay Beach Clean-up

Hout Bay Beach Clean-up

Learners from Kronendal Primary and Sentinel Primary Schools enjoying a refreshing Fanta and sausage roll after cleaning Hout Bay beach on Saturday morning (21 May 2011) with Peninsula Beverage Company (PenBev) staff members from the Athlone plant.  The learners had a great time seeing who could collect the most rubbish from the beach while at the same time experiencing first-hand how rewarding it is to enjoy a clean and tidy environment, rather than one littered with rubbish, which apart from being unsightly, can have far-reaching effects on our wildlife and sea creatures. Learners were educated about potentially dangerous objects that they should not pick up before they began their collection, and also had to wear rubber gloves. As part of PenBev’s  ‘Live for a Difference’ campaign, where caring for the environment is one of the many initiatives they support, PenBev sponsored the learner’s transport to and from the beach, as well as all the refreshments. PenBev is committed to educating and uplifting the less privileged in our communities and continues to arrange transport and refreshments for such educational outings
